Work to build a complex of new homes for people aged over 55 has begun in a village near Lincoln.
We are working with Lindum Construction to build 50 bungalows and ten flats on land off Church Lane in Saxilby, with the support of a social housing grant through Homes England.
The start of construction work was marked with an official turning of the turf ceremony at the site in July and homes will be available from early 2019.
The complex will include 20 homes for private sale, 20 for sale on a shared ownership basis and 20 for affordable rent.
Representatives from Acis, Lindum and West Lindsey District Council joined guests at the event to hear how the development will provide high-quality, independent living space which will go towards meeting the needs of Lincolnshire’s aging population.
Greg Bacon, our Chief Executive, said: “We’re delighted to be extending our footprint in Saxilby by bringing more affordable homes to the village.
“We understand people have different needs so are committed to providing a range of different tenure options, including our popular shared ownership model.”
Cllr David Cotton, ward member for Saxilby welcomed the news of work starting, following seven months of land preparation work at the site.
He said: “We are pleased to see the development commence as it supports West Lindsey District Council’s Growth agenda.
The Acis scheme will provide much needed retirement accommodation, both market and affordable, for over 55 year olds.”
MD of Lindum Construction, Simon Gregory, said: “We are very pleased at Lindum to be embarking on another construction project with Acis Group, which is a repeat and valued client.
“As a local building company, which has a local workforce, we are delighted to be part of a development that is bringing much-needed, good quality homes to the thriving village of Saxilby.”
