A celebration has been held to mark the completion of a £4m development to provide much-needed affordable housing in Corby.
Spire Homes has built 31 properties in Butland Road, in the town, and the company is now planning a further 800 homes during the next four years.
The development includes two bungalows designed to cater for the needs of elderly or disabled residents. 25 affordable homes to rent and six properties for shared ownership.
Katy Sagoe, head of housing services for Spire Homes, said: “It is good to be working with everyone involved to develop these homes. We are pleased to be able to develop affordable homes for those who really need them, especially now more than ever with the increasing shortage of affordable homes. This scheme has provided a great mix of housing that will meet the needs of many people in the area.”
The scheme was a joint venture with Westleigh Developments and Longhurst Group, supported by a Homes and Communities Agency affordable housing programme grant of £300,000.
Spire Homes’ chairman John Farrar welcomed guests from the Homes and Communities Agency, representatives of Corby Council, Longhurst Group, Westleigh and Brian to a celebration to mark the completion of the development.
