We’re pleased to announce our next steps in the regeneration of Gainsborough.
Land remediation work will begin on the Bowling Green Lane site on Tuesday 26 May.
This marks the start of our major regeneration project for Gainsborough town centre working in partnership with West Lindsey District Council and the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
The remediation work is the first step in the development journey for the site, making sure potential flood issues are dealt with.
This work will last until around Christmas 2020 before development works begin to build 135 new homes in the new year.
Earlier this year we were granted planning permission for the site and we are pleased work is now going to begin on the brownfield site. The plans gave the green light for us to develop new homes with associated landscaping and riverside walk.
The £20 million development will be built on a riverside setting on Bowling Green Lane, close to the popular Mercer Wood. It will offer residents an innovative mix of various affordable housing types from over 55s accommodation to family homes.
This project, along with our redevelopment of North Parade, will see us provide further sustainable communities for the future of Gainsborough, in line with local demand.
