A new council house development launch in Creswell has marked the start of a four-year housing partnership in Bolsover District.
We entered into the house building partnership with Robert Woodhead Ltd. earlier this year. Titled B@Home, the Partnership, which was procured through the Efficiency East Midlands (EEM), New Build Developer Framework will deliver over 100 high quality, energy efficient homes, over the four year period.
The launch saw the first sod being cut at Rogers Avenue, Creswell to signify the start of the project, which will not only create council houses, but will see many other benefits such as 200 training events and more than 50 work experience and apprentice opportunities for local people and businesses.
The first phase of the development, starting at Rogers Avenue will see 7 dwellings built.
Other developments including 25 dwellings will be spread over four other sites:
• Fir Close, Shirebrook
• Derwent Drive, Tibshelf
• Blackwell Hotel, Blackwell
• Recreation Close, Clowne
We are looking to shape the future of our District and commissioned a community-led district wide regeneration.
Led by consultants Bauman Lyons Architects, the work primarily focused on the four towns, but also included the wider settlements and areas of interest such as Creswell Crags. It will help identify the strengths and build upon them, but also look at areas that need improving.
We have now produced four frameworks for our main towns which include surrounding villages and hamlets.
Please see the regeneration pages for further details.
