In March we announced plans to build new homes on unused garage sites to provide much needed affordable places to live for people in Nottingham to live, bring land back into proper use and help regenerate the wider area. I am proud that this week we confirmed that 36 new council apartments will be built by Nottingham City Homes in Clifton on the site of the former Southchurch garages, off Hamilton Court.
Nottingham needs a mix of all different types of housing and due to the high demand for homes for singles and couples in Clifton, these one-bedroom apartments for affordable rent will help meet the needs of local people waiting for a home.
Building, warm, safe, and energy efficient new homes, not only regenerates sites which are no longer fit for purpose, but also encourages investment, creates jobs and helps to support local supply chain businesses, which continues to be an important part of Nottingham’s Covid-19 recovery.
