Three Valleys Housing has appointed Lindum Group to build nine new homes on the site of the former Hart Lea sheltered accommodation in Sandiacre.
The development is part of a plan to revitalise three sites, with a larger phase at neighbouring Town Street, plus another two homes at nearby Vine Crescent.
Sue Coulson, of Three Valleys Housing, said: “I am delighted we can now start on site with Lindum on board. This regeneration programme will help to meet local demand for good quality affordable homes, and it will create jobs and training opportunities. The new homes will be of a high standard with low running cost.”
