Lindum built 36 affordable homes on the site of on old dairy in Lincoln for housing provider Longhurst Group.
The development, on Boultham Park Road, comprised six three-bed townhouses, 12 three-bedroom semi-detached houses and 18 two-bedroom semi-detached homes.
Of the properties, 19 will be available on a Shared Ownership basis, where people part buy and part rent, with the remainder made available for Affordable Rent, which typically costs 20 percent less than the price of privately renting a similar sized property.
The old Boultham dairy was the main provider of dairy products for Lincoln and the surrounding area until its closure in 2012. The homes mark the final piece of the jigsaw in the redevelopment of the site, with a mosque and supermarket having also been built on the land.
The site was derelict and the construction was complicated, with ground works taking longer than initially anticipated.
Thankfully, Lindum Group was able to utilise its full complement of construction services, including our in-house plant and waste services to overcome the obstacles and get progress back on track.
The development was named after the Ellison family, a prominent name in Lincolnshire heritage during the 18th and 19th centuries.
