Work on 110 new homes in Nottinghamshire town has begun – here’s what to expect

Land in a Nottinghamshire town has been bought for housing, and construction work on the site has now begun. Developer Countryside, who completed the land purchase, has now moved onto the site in Alfreton Road, Sutton-in-Ashfield.

Some 110 new homes will be built on the site. The two, three and four-bedroom properties will be created on land behind Alfreton Road, near the A38. The developer says this will bring much-needed new rental and affordable properties to the area. As part of the plan, a new access road will link the new homes to Alfreton Road and a new footpath will provide a direct link through to Mapplewells Primary School.

Of the 110 homes being built, 99 will be available for private rental through the Gatehouse Bank and TPG Real Estate joint venture and 11 properties will be affordable homes owned and managed by EMH group.

Countryside has an unrivalled reputation for building houses that meet the requirements of local communities, and as such we are pleased to join them in bringing these new homes to Sutton-in-Ashfield.”
