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
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
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.

These are due to be completed later this year dependant on
the COVID-19 situation.
