Long-awaited first phase of social housing scheme reaches completion

The first phase of one of Nottingham’s biggest council housing projects has finally reached completion.

This project was initially proposed several years ago for the land where Beckhampton Road and Eastglade Road meet, which used to be the location of the demolished Padstow School.

The Lovell Partnership has been in charge of developing the site, and Nottingham City Council reports that residents have started moving in, with another 90 residents hoping to move in before Christmas.

The project consists of a total of 131 council homes, including two and three-bedroom houses, bungalows, and flats, all built on this land.

Jay Hayes, portfolio holder for housing and ward councillor for Bestwood said: “We believe these homes, and the people moving into them, will form the basis of new communities in Bestwood. Building warm, safe, and energy-efficient new homes not only encourages investment and creates jobs, it also helps create thriving neighbourhoods for Nottingham families to enjoy.”

The Lovell Partnership has taken over the task of finishing the neighbouring Eastglade development in Top Valley. This transition occurred after the previous contractor, Robert Woodhead Ltd, faced financial difficulties and went out of business last year.
