Lindum Group has started work on 50 new affordable homes in Bottisham, on behalf of Accent Group.

The £9.5 million development includes 30 shared ownership homes and 20 properties for affordable rent. It will be a combination of one-bedroom flats, two to four-bedroom semi-detached houses, and four two-bed bungalows.

The homes will all be built to the previous building regulations, however they will all achieve EPC rating A through the installation of solar panels.

Lindum Construction Manager, Colin Knight, said: “We are thrilled to be underway on what will be a very exciting project for Accent Group.

“These 50 properties will make a significant impact on the affordable housing needs of the area, encouraging first time buyers to come to the village, whilst also helping the people who grew up there to stay.”

Provisions are also being put in place for future development of the land.

Since work started, foundations have been put in place, and work will soon begin on the roads and sewers. The road works will connect the site to the existing road on Ox Meadow.

The Scheme is being developed with part funding from Homes England.

Work is due to be completed by late Autumn 2024.
