Derwent Living is nearing completion of more than 60 new affordable homes in Littleover, Derby.
The properties, near Heatherton Village, are part of a drive to provide 670 new low-cost homes over the next three years, to help combat housing need in the Midlands.
Several other sites are also planned in Derby, including Mackworth and Boulton Moor, which will be a mix of shared ownership and affordable rented homes.
Head of Development, Neal Farmer, said: “There’s a real need for affordable housing in our region. Over the next three years Derwent Living is planning to work with developers to create properties for rent and shared ownership.
“Smaller homes are especially needed, so we’re creating one-bed houses alongside two and three-bed family homes.
“This is our first business plan since joining the Places for People Group in January 2017; a move which has enabled us to launch our most ambitious development programme in recent years and opened up further opportunities for Derwent Living to increase investment in communities.”
The first of these new homes are being delivered alongside national housebuilders, as well as local authorities, and are expected to be completed by late 2017.
