Contractor Willmott Dixon has started on site on a residential scheme in Rookery Lane in central Lincoln.

The £7.1m development includes 42 new homes, comprising 32 two to four-bedroom houses, four two-bedroom bungalows and six one-bedroom apartments.

Michelle Cotterill, director at Willmott Dixon, said: “We’re pleased to be starting work on the Rookery Lane site, delivering much needed, quality, affordable housing for the people of Lincoln, while also supporting the City of Lincoln Council’s plans to respond to the 2019 Housing Needs Survey.

“Our Now or Never 2030 Sustainability Strategy positions buildings, people and the environment at the centre of our ethos, and this project is no different. We will be working closely with the residents of Lincoln across a range of social value initiatives that will increase communal, economic and environmental wellbeing in the region, while also delivering high energy efficiency levels throughout the scheme.

“We are delighted to be extending our long-standing relationship with the City of Lincoln Council, which has seen us deliver schemes such as the award-winning Lincoln Transport Hub. We’re looking forward to working closely with all parties involved to deliver this scheme.”

The construction work is due to complete on site in December 2022.
