Owner of incomplete Nottingham housing estate in discussions with contractors
Discussions are ongoing to complete a housing project in Nottinghamshire that came to a sudden halt.
Ilke Homes, the housebuilder, was constructing 131 homes for the Jigsaw Homes Group at Rolleston Drive in Arnold. However, construction stopped abruptly when Ilke Homes sought a buyer on June 9.
Then, on June 30, just two weeks before the first occupants were set to move in, Ilke Homes went into administration due to failed investment efforts. Now, Jigsaw Homes, the site owner, has confirmed it is in talks with several contractors to resume and complete the halted development.
The property proposal was initially granted approval back in 2020.
Gedling Borough Council, with residents eager to move into the new homes, expressed concerns that any delays would harm those already waiting for housing assistance.
Ilke Homes had explained that it was looking to sell due to difficulties in securing funds and delivering housing. They pointed to unstable economic conditions and problems with the planning system as contributing factors.
