Together Housing Group, Chief Executive Steve Close and Conservative MP, Mark Fletcher toured the Stephenson Grange housing development in Chesterfield recently. Taking a look at Together Housing Group’s affordable homes on offer they discussed the positive impact Stephenson Grange will have on the local community.
The development is being built as part of a joint venture between Together Housing Group and Lovell Partnerships to help tackle the housing crisis across the North of England and increase the supply of new homes within the community. Out of the 156 homes on the development, 38 are available for affordable rent or shared ownership and six of these affordable properties have already been reserved via shared ownership.
Steve Close, Together Housing Group, Chief Executive said, “Our joint venture with Lovell Partnerships on the Stephenson Grange site helps to deal with the housing shortage by ensuring the needs of the wider community are met and local people benefit. The partnership means we are able to offer a wide range of housing options to suit different circumstances.”
As part of the Wave 2 funding programme, Homes England has formed a Strategic Partnership with Together Housing, making £53m available to build new affordable homes. The new homes will be delivered through the Partnership including Accent and WDH and Community Gateway. The Strategic Partnership will build an additional 1,152 homes across the country.
Mark Fletcher, Conservative MP spoke about the positive impact of new homes on the community saying, ‘’It’s so important that we continue to build more quality housing throughout the Bolsover constituency to ensure that young people, first time buyers, keyworkers and those on lower incomes can all have a place to call home in their community.”
Mr Fletcher added, “I’d like to thank Lovell Homes and their partners Together Housing Group for inviting me to visit the Stephenson Grange development. I’ve been blown away by the quality of their work and they’ve been working really closely with residents to ensure the work they’re doing is sensitive to the needs of the local community’’
