The development, known as Vasey Fields, is being built on land to the south of Vasey Close in Bassingham.

It’s being delivered by leading housing provider Longhurst Group, in partnership with local construction company Lindum Group.

The homes, which include one and two-bedroom bungalows, as well as two and three-bedroom houses, will be made available on a mix of tenures, including Shared Ownership.

Members of Lindum Group and Longhurst Group recently attended an event on site, signifying work starting on the new homes.

Marcus Keys, Executive Director of Growth, Development and Assets at Longhurst Group, said: “We know there’s a demand for affordable housing in this area and we’ve worked closely with our partners at Lindum Group to come up with a development that meets this need.

“As a Group, we’re committed to providing the homes people want, where they’re needed most, and we believe this development will help us to continue to do just.

“These 18 homes will also see us strengthen our portfolio in Lincolnshire and help more people realise their dream of home ownership in an affordable way.

“I’m delighted to see work now getting underway and I’m looking forward to seeing the development progress.”

Each home will have its own individual garden space and appropriate private parking provision in what will be a high-quality housing development.

The project will also include over half an acre dedicated to biodiversity net gain. This area will be planted with native species of shrubs, trees, and flowers to improve the natural environment and local ecology.

Lindum Group Land and Planning Manager Robert Jays said: “It is fantastic to see work starting on this exciting new project that has been in the works for a while. Getting this first spade in the ground is a testament to all the hard work that has gone into developing a project that will benefit the local village and help provide opportunities for people in housing need.”
