Jigsaw Homes Midlands has appointed a new contractor to complete the development of 131 affordable homes at Rolleston Drive in Arnold.

Midlands-based Morro Partnerships was appointed following a procurement process and will start work on the scheme from July.

Morro will complete the homes, originally manufactured off site by ilke Homes before the company went into administration, and build the four remaining homes on site.

The Homes England-backed scheme, known as Birch Fields, will have 45 two-bedroom homes, 73 three-bedroom homes and 13 four-bedroom homes and will be available for either shared ownership or affordable rent.

Garnet Fazackerley, Operations Director of Development at Jigsaw Homes Group, said: “This has been an incredibly challenging time following the collapse of ilke Homes in June 2023.

“However, we remained committed and confident that we could find a suitable partner who could complete the scheme and provide much-needed affordable homes and we are delighted to be working with Morro Partnerships to complete this development.

“The homes will have NHBC warranty following stringent quality and compliance checks and will be finished to a high standard as they have been kept watertight and secure since the development stalled.

“We appreciate the patience from Gedling Borough Council, Homes
