Another new scheme we made a start on this year is at Central Avenue, Northampton. This £9.3m project, delivered in partnership with United Living Group, will provide 38 band new affordable homes for the area.
The site, on the northern outskirts of town, will create 20 social rent and 18 shared ownership properties, including one bedroom flats and two and three bedroom homes. The project is expected to take 18 months to complete.
Lindsey Williams, Group Chief Executive of Futures said: “I’m really pleased we’re working with United Living to build much needed homes for people in Northamptonshire. There’s an annual shortfall in the number of homes being built across our region and nationwide, so developments like this are very much a part of our core purpose here at Futures.”
Caroline Lewis, Managing Director of United Living said: “We’re delighted to have been awarded this contract. Northampton is experiencing a social housing shortage, and we’re so pleased to be able to create accessible, safe and comfortable accommodation to help address these local needs.”
Lindsey added: “Building new, affordable homes is a key priority for Futures as we continually strive to support the community with more housing. I look forward to seeing the homes developed with United Living over the next few years.”
