Work starts on new Ongo Homes town centre office
By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 23 Jun 2017
Work has started on the new Ongo Homes offices in Scunthorpe town centre.
Builders have been spotted working on the extension to Church Square House, where the offices will be located.
In the meantime, 36 North Lincolnshire Council car parking bays are temporarily closed while they are used as a builders yard - but will be back in use by October 2018, when the project is expected to be complete.
North Lincolnshire Council planners voted unanimously in favour of granting permission for the offices for social landlord Ongo Homes back in March.
The new offices are part of a wider plan to regenerate Scunthorpe town centre, funded by the Viable and Vibrant Places Fund.
Speaking about the fund at the time, leader of North Lincolnshire Council Rob Waltham said: “Our vision for Scunthorpe is to make it a place where people want to live, work and play.
“The Viable and Vibrant Places Fund will support this vision in supporting a wide range of projects to improve and develop Scunthorpe town centre for the better."
