Lincolnshire housing association completes work in Scunthorpe

Affordable housing association, LACE Housing, has completed 16 apartments located in North Lincolnshire

Collinson Court, located south of Scunthorpe town centre, will provide 16 affordable, safe and secure homes for people aged over 55.

The new development by LACE Housing consists of two 2-storey buildings, incorporating 16 one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, as well as a communal lounge facility, mobility scooter store and enclosed private gardens.

The scheme is designed to aid and encourage access to the wider community and is located within easy reach of supermarkets, public transport, a doctor’s surgery, convenience stores and eateries.

Nick Chambers, CEO of LACE Housing Association, said:

“We are absolutely delighted to have finished work on our latest development, Collinson Court, located in the growing town of Scunthorpe.

“At LACE Housing, we are dedicated to providing affordable, high quality homes for the Lincolnshire community, which are open to anyone over the age of 55. This scheme will provide much-needed affordable housing to support independent living for our older and vulnerable people.

“With our first residents having already moved in, I’m so excited to hear what they think of this excellent facility. We’d like to encourage anyone who is interested in moving to Collinson Court to get in touch with us via our website.”

Local contractors, T.G. Sowerby Developments Ltd, were appointed to carry out the building work on the scheme, which was designed by Cambridge-based Saunders Boston Architects.

James Bonsall, Director at T.G. Sowerby Developments Ltd, said:

“With this scheme, Lace Housing has had an incredibly positive impact on the local area by transforming the site from what it was into a modern and attractive development, specifically designed for older people to live, and it has been a pleasure to work with them to achieve this.

“We’re extremely proud of the workmanship and quality of finish which our tradespeople have delivered on this project, which has also enabled us to sustain and create several apprenticeships with our firm, with trainee bricklayers, joiners and site managers all getting some of their first experiences of the construction industry here.

“We sincerely hope that all the residents of Collinson Court will be very happy in their new homes.”

To be eligible for LACE’s accommodation, residents will be required to meet certain criteria, including having a connection to the local area of North Lincolnshire.
