Developer starts work on major mixed-use scheme

How the scheme will look

Hockley Developments, the Nottingham-based developer, has started work on its mixed-use development in Sherwood, which will bring forward a Sainsburys supermarket, a new library as well as a mixture of 1-4 bed houses.

The firm, which is developing several sites in Nottingham, also said it expects to have new sites in Leicestershire and Northamptonshire later this year.

Head of construction at Hockley Developments, Paul Kennedy, said: “Understandably, there is a lot of excitement about this development locally, which will transform this part of Sherwood, and we look forward to playing our part developing Sherwood, as well as providing some much needed housing.”

Business development manager at Hockley Developments, Rebeka Dobuma, added: “Since the hoarding went up at the end of last week, we have been getting 5-6 calls and emails every day, with people keen to find out more about the family houses that we are developing. We already have 40 people pre-registered for further information – these shall be released for sale later this year, and we are delighted with the response – this will be a great place to live, so close to Nottingham city centre, and with excellent schools nearby.”
