Gleeson to deliver 196 high-quality affordable new homes to Kirkby-In-Ashfield

Gleeson Homes, the high-quality affordable housebuilder, is pleased to announce it has received planning permission for the development of 196 new homes on Farm View Road in Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire. 

The site, named Hollinwell Heath, spans 16.2 acres and will include a range of Gleeson’s 2, 3, and 4-bedroom homes in a mix of rural and urban elevations.

As part of the development, and its ongoing commitment to community engagement, Gleeson will gift an existing barn to Ashfield District Council, which will be converted into a new Community Hall for local residents. This represents part of a donation of around £750,000 that Gleeson will provide to improve local facilities such as libraries, travel, and highways.

With the high-quality homes due to start from prices of around £175,000, Gleeson expects the site to be popular with a range of different customer demographics, from first-time buyers to second-steppers and downsizers. This aligns with Gleeson’s experience in the local area following its strategic rebranding and repositioning to target a wider range of potential customers. Furthermore, a couple earning the National Living Wage will be able to buy a home at Hollinwell Heath.

The development is well-located, being less than a mile from the town centre and with excellent access to amenities, schools and surrounding commuter links. Gleeson expects to commence building in late Spring/early Summer this year, with plans to start welcoming viewings in early 2025.

"We are delighted to have secured this development, a key project for the region, and we can’t wait to get started. This development is in a great location and will showcase the best of our product offering to potential customers. We are passionate about supplying much-needed high-quality affordable homes, and will also continue to invest in the areas in which we build to make a positive impact for our local communities."
