Magical beginnings as handover starts at three site Clipstone development

We’ve started the handover at a new development in Clipstone, Nottinghamshire, working in partnership with Nottingham Community Housing Association (NCHA) and Waters Homes, to provide 25 new affordable homes.

The Clipstone development consists of three separate sites on small parcels of unused land owned by NCHA. These were all formerly garage forecourts, situated along Forest Road in Clipstone.

Each of the sites will contain a mixture of two bedroom houses and one bedroom flats, with a design that’s been created in line with the surrounding architecture, reflecting many of the local features like steep roof pitches, tiled corbel eaves and gable end details.

The sites were also able to include green spaces to allow for community growth and on two of the sites we were able to specifically provide enclosed landscaped communal ‘pocket parks’ for the residents.

All three sites had requirements to maintain a combination of public footpaths and rights of way across them, giving access to allotments and private houses. This was managed in the early design with our sites private access drives maintaining all connections as required.

Waters Homes have displayed a great level of professional site management and public liaison to not only produce good quality builds, but also manage to maintain safe access for the public across the sites.

Darron Waldram, Senior Architectural Technician, said: “It’s been a pleasure to see these potentially problematic sites progress so well. It’s been a real team effort from all involved right from the onset, allowing NCHA to provide these modern affordable homes.”

All three sites are due to be competed by late 2019. For all enquiries contact our Allocations team on 0800 013 8555 / 0115 844 3150 or email NCHA on
