Nottingham Community Housing Association (NCHA) has started work to build a development of 75 new affordable homes on Goodsmoor Road in Derby.

The site on Goodsmoor Road in Sinfin, less than five miles south of Derby city centre, will provide accommodation comprising one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom homes whilst regenerating the site of a former munition depot.

Marking the first joint scheme as part of a wider partnership, MORRO Partnerships will construct the affordable homes on behalf of NCHA.

The development will be made up of 45 affordable homes for rent and 30 will be available to buy with the help of the shared ownership scheme.

NCHA, MORRO and RG+P Architects met with Derby City Council for a tour of the site.

Councillor Shiraz Khan, Cabinet Member for Housing, Property and Regulatory Services at Derby City Council, said: “The right to a warm, safe and affordable home is critical to wellbeing and is a right everyone deserves. This mix of new affordable homes is exactly what Derby needs to support local families and young professionals.

“I’m thrilled to see construction underway and look forward to seeing future residents building strong communities here.”

The scheme contributes to NCHA‘s Strategic Partnership with Homes
