Over £100m invested to transform former Boots factory into new homes

Housebuilder Keepmoat is investing over £102m to create hundreds of new homes in Nottingham, with construction already underway on a former Boots factory site.

The development will include 604 new multi-tenure homes, revitalising the disused land and establishing a new community in Nottinghamshire.

Platform Housing Group will provide 319 of these homes as affordable housing.

Representatives from Platform Housing Group and Boots joined Keepmoat’s Charlotte Goode, Paul Hulme, and Philippa Stewart at the 286-acre site near Beeston to celebrate the project’s commencement and see the progress.

Charlotte Goode, divisional chair at Keepmoat, said: “Keepmoat is delighted to be regenerating this landmark development on a very special site that will bring much-needed, high-quality new homes and significant investment to the city.

“For this historical site alone, we are investing £102 million into creating a fantastic community and we’re proud to stand alongside our partners at Platform Housing Group today to mark the beginning of a wonderful community. We’re committed to delivering new homes for the people of Nottingham and the surrounding areas to transform the area and provide quality new homes.”

Laura Osborne, sales & marketing director at Platform Housing Group, said: “At Platform Housing Group, we’re thrilled to collaborate with our partner, Keepmoat, to build new homes in Beeston. This is a hugely important scheme for Platform, to be contributing to the growth of a thriving town and to provide much-needed affordable housing in the area.

“Beeston is an up-and-coming area with fantastic potential to become one of the most sought-after commuter locations in the Midlands, so to be leading the way with such a large-scale development is rewarding.”
