TWO former run-down garage sites in Grimsby will be transformed into 23 new affordable homes by North East Lincolnshire’s largest housing provider.
Shoreline Housing Partnership has been granted approval from North East Lincolnshire Council to regenerate two sites – one in the East Marsh and one on Bradley Park.
Increasing the supply of affordable high-quality accommodation, in total the schemes comprise of 15 two-bedroom houses on land off Harlech Way and Werneth Road, East Marsh.
The other site to be transformed is land off Bremerhaven Way and Dolby Vale, Bradley Park where a total of eight new homes will be built.
The homes will all be two-storey in size, with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the top floor, with a living/dining area, kitchen and small washroom with a toilet downstairs.
Each will come with a rear garden, and there will be a selection of private parking spaces for residents.
The housing organisation also sets out its commitment to installing a “high level” of physical security measures once the homes are built.
Due to complete next year, the modern homes will include downstairs toilets, fitted kitchens, resident parking and rear gardens, with the East Marsh properties built around a central courtyard parking zone.
Shoreline director of operations, Mark Jones, said: “These are high-quality affordable properties, transforming garage sites and helping to regenerate local neighbourhoods to make them a better place for people to live and work.
“We’re delighted to be able to increase our housing stock and help meet the demand for two-bedroom properties.”
Part-funded by the Homes and Communities Agency, the properties have been designed by Grimsby-based practice, Ross Davy Associates.
