We have celebrated the official opening of our new development in Welton.
We held a ‘meet your neighbour day’ in Welton to celebrate the construction of the new Eshings development in the village.
The development has brought 50 new affordable homes to the area, with 23 houses, 15 bungalows and 12 flats. Homes have been built by Beal Homes in partnership with West Lindsey District Council and Acis.
Some 27 of the properties will be affordably let by us, while four will be part-let under its shared ownership scheme. The remaining 19 have been sold on the open market.
The development cost more than £4million to develop and the first units were delivered on 4 May 2016 with the last on 26 October 2016.
Councillors and new residents met at the Welton Manor Sports Park and enjoyed free tea, coffee and cake.
Claire Tunstall, our Customer Engagement Officer, said: “The ‘Come and meet your Neighbour day’ was a great success. We had very positive feedback from the customers, local community group members and local councillors not just about the event itself but also about The Eshings development and how happy customers are living there.
“These events are a fantastic opportunity to celebrate new developments and for people and the community to engage and talk to neighbours, build up relationships and get involved in local groups and societies.
“We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who attended who helped make the day so enjoyable, including customers, community groups and local councillors.”
