New homes

First dementia care scheme in the region

Lots of work took place at the beginning of this year on a

brand new specialist dementia care scheme on Warwick

Road, Scunthorpe.

The development, which will be the first of its kind in North

Lincolnshire, is made up of 25 two-bed apartments. Work

first started on the homes last September.

Specialist features will include safe and secure landscaped

gardens, CCTV, and staff on hand 24 hours a day. This will

support families to live together for as long as possible, and

will help them to lead a safe and comfortable life.

We have invested over £3m in the scheme. £1m was granted

from Homes England, and North Lincolnshire Council has

contributed around £300,000. The homes are due to be

completed next year.

Georgie McGuire, Development Project Manager, said: "We

are committed to building homes for specific needs as well

as general needs and, with no other such scheme available in

the local area, this project is vitally important.

"It will have a huge impact on the residents' lives, and we

can't wait for it to be completed."

Rent to Buy homes completed

Our first Rent to Buy scheme was recently completed.

The development, on Collum Avenue in Ashby, Scunthorpe,

contains 13 three-bed and one two-bed home. They are

close to shops, schools and parks, and are an ideal way for

people looking to make their first step towards becoming a

homeowner.

Rent to Buy is a scheme that allows you to rent the home

from us at around 20% less than market rent. This allows you

to save the remainder as a deposit and, after five years, you

then have the option to buy the home.

We currently are building two other Rent to Buy schemes.

The first are 16 homes on Rochdale and Lancaster Road

in Scunthorpe, which are a mix of two-bed and three-bed

houses. The second development is on Rowland Road,

Scunthorpe, and contains four three-bed homes. There will

also be two three-bed properties for shared ownership as

part of the build.

In March, the majority of our construction sites made the decision to close temporarily due to COVID-19. Following updated

government guidance, all work on our development sites has since resumed. They are all observing government guidelines and

safe systems of working.

(All information correct as of 15 May)

These are due to be completed later this year dependant on

the COVID-19 situation.
