New homes on laundry site

A total of 23 affordable homes are being built on the site of a former laundry off Westfield Road in Wellingborough.

Demolition work is complete and building work has started on the site, with the homes due to be completed in spring next year.

The homes are being built on the site of the Sunlight Laundry, which closed in 2009, by East Midlands Housing Group.

They will be a mix of two and three-bedroom houses, flats and one bungalow for rent and shared ownership.
