Nottingham City Council aims to ensure 2,500 new homes are built (2015-2019) which Nottingham people can afford to buy or rent. This will be from the Private sector, as well as our own ambitious Council Housing Programme.
Since the current BABN Council housing new build programme began in 2014, 208 new homes have been built (excluding the 142 due to be completed at Lenton in November 2017).
In Radford, Strelley and the Meadows poor quality flats have been replaced by high quality new housing. These include:
52 family homes in Radford on the site of the Highcross, Highurst and Clifford Court highrise blocks.
In Strelley 12 flats, 11 bungalows and 25 houses built on the site of the Cranwell Road flats.
In the Meadows, 45 houses and 9 bungalows have been built on the site of the Q blocks in the Meadows. The first properties in this development were built using Building Information Modelling (BIM). Nottingham City Homes are the first social housing provider in the UK to use BIM, and are now working on a national case study.
The Meadows properties also have innovative sun tubes that bring up to 70% more natural light into the properties and help to combat fuel poverty.
Surplus garage sites across the city have also been developed to provide 41 new family houses and 12 new bungalows, helping to meet the need for new affordable homes and at the same time improving the quality of the built environment in these neighbourhoods.
