Nottingham City Council has approved plans submitted by Gleeson Homes to transform the former Springwood Adult Day Centre off Ransom Drive in Mapperley into a new community of 50 two, three and four bedroom homes which will be priced to suit local, first time buyers.
The company focuses on building homes aimed at young people who are struggling to quit the rent trap and are looking to get onto the property ladder. The Government’s Help to Buy will be available to enhance affordability.
Construction of the new homes is due to commence shortly and throughout the development Gleeson will be working with the local Mapperley community through their Community Matters programme which will see the creation of jobs and apprenticeships for local people, the sponsorship of junior sports teams and working with local school.
This will be Gleeson’s first new homes development in Nottingham and follows the housebuilder opening an area office in Bulwell as they look to increase operations across the Midlands.
Gleeson are now accepting apprenticeship applications from people in the local community looking to start a career in construction. They are also looking to sponsor a local junior sports team based in the area, and welcome applications through their website.
