Forging a new development in Beckingham

Published on 29 November 2022, by Gainsboroughlive | No comments yet |

Forge New Homes, a partnership between five housing associations, has secured planning permission for its third development in Beckingham.

The venture is set to invest £13 million into 57 bungalows on a 7-acre site off Station Road, west of Gainsborough.

Set in the Lincolnshire countryside, a mixture of dormer, detached, and semi-detached bungalows will provide modern and flexible spaces for buyers. The homes will be for market sale, shared ownership, and affordable rent.

The bungalows at Beckingham will offer buyers seamless, free-flowing layouts and blended indoor-outdoor living. Work is set to start in spring 2023, with the first homes available to reserve in late 2023.

Forge New Homes has two other developments – The Hedgerows at Pilsley, set to welcome its first homeowners this December, and a further site in the location of the former Bolsover Hospital.

With customers at their heart, the regional developer will continue to build liveable spaces for thriving households and growing communities.

Andy Beattie, Project Director for Forge New Homes said:“We’re delighted to have been granted planning permission for this development that will bring much-needed homes to Beckingham. We’ve engaged actively with the community and local authority to ensure we deliver high-quality new homes that buyers are looking for.

The bungalows will be in keeping with the other homes in the village. Like our other two developments we’ll be working hard to provide beautiful spaces for people to make memories, grow families and friendships.”

Nick Atkin, Chief Executive of Yorkshire Housing and Chair of Forge New Homes, added: “We’re delighted that the Beckingham project has passed planning and we’re looking forward to bringing much-needed family housing to the area.

We’re keen to work in partnership with other public and private-sector organisations to participate in project delivery and would welcome conversations with anyone that can help us to access sites and the delivery of new homes.”
