Nottingham Community Housing Association (NCHA) is continuing its development of new homes on the old Radford mill site.
Since 2014, NCHA has developed 67 new homes on the old mill site in partnership with Nottingham City Council. The latest, and third, phase of the development has been made possible by grant funding of £88,500 provided by Nottingham City Council. Work started on site at the junction of Denman Street Central and Norton Street with the recent demolition of The Globe, a former pub that was derelict for more than 20 years. Once completed, the third phase will add a further 22 new houses and flats to the site.
Designed by NCHA’s Pelham Architects, the scheme reflects the needs of the local community and the council’s housing strategies, with a mixture of houses and flats across the whole site.
NCHA is looking to start construction of the final phase of this scheme in early 2016 with completion in early 2017. Properties will be allocated to people in housing need using a sensitive lettings policy. NCHA will also provide housing management for all the properties once the new tenants have moved in.
Allan Fisher, NCHA’s Director of Development praised another great example of partnership working. “This project is a successful example of a housing need that is being addressed through the partnership of two established housing developers – NCHA and Nottingham City Council,” he said.
”With 89 new homes being created, on a site that was just growing more and more derelict, it’s great to think that so many people will benefit from this development of high quality new homes.”
Deputy Leader of Nottingham City Council, Graham Chapman said: “It is a huge step forward that The Globe, a former pub that has been derelict for a number of years, will soon be redeveloped for quality housing. The building has been a blight on Radford but the new scheme will now benefit the community.
“The local councillors, who have pressed for this site to be redeveloped, provided funding towards the acquisition from their area budget and we are looking forward to the site being developed in line with our wider plans for neighbourhood regeneration.”
