Former Whitwell Co-op transformed into five apartments

The former Co-op in Whitwell – which has been empty and derelict for many years – is now home to five spacious and affordable one-bedroom apartments.

This will be welcome news to local residents as the building had begun to deteriorate whilst it had lain empty and it will also provide much needed affordable accommodation for couples and single people who want to live in the village.

We have worked with Action Housing, and we will now offer the flats to local people who need local properties through our housing register.

Cabinet Member for Housing, Councillor Sandra Peake said, “Refurbishing this property has given the high street a huge lift and will give local people a decent, affordable home. At a time when we have such a high-demand for housing, it is more important than ever that we utilise empty properties and bring them back into use.

“We have developed an excellent working relationship with Action Housing, having been involved with a number of successful projects over the years and I look forward to seeing these apartments being rented out to people who deserve and need this type of accommodation.

If you are interested in renting an apartment, you will need to be on our Housing Register or visit Action Housing website.
