Affordable Housing Scheme set to open in Lincolnshire

The latest development in a scheme to provide much needed affordable rural housing will be opened in Skegness, Lincolnshire next week.
Saxon Fields consists of 168 new homes and a community hub facility which has been made possible thanks to the Unlocking Rural Housing Programme run by the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
Ninety out of 100 affordable homes have so far been built on the 1.12-hectare brownfield site, and the original scheme has been enlarged, meaning a further 68 homes will now be added by the summer of 2018.
Saxon Fields has been developed by the Waterloo Housing Group. Other partners include East Lindsey District Council, Chestnut Homes and the Homes and Communities Agency.
The Unlocking Rural Housing Programme, which is bringing affordable housing to the Borough of Boston and East Lindsey, benefited from £4.2m of funding in the first round of the Greater Lincolnshire LEP’s Growth Deal negotiated with the government.
It aims to help build 419 affordable homes on priority housing sites in and around Boston and Skegness which, owing to significant barriers and constraints, would not otherwise be brought forward in the short to medium term.
David Dexter, Deputy Chair of the Greater Lincolnshire LEP says: “It’s a great pleasure to see this development completed successfully.
“We funded this scheme because we recognise the importance of housing to the local economy, and the contribution which housing makes to growth.
“That’s why, in the very first Growth Deal which we negotiated with the government, we developed our £4.2m Unlocking Rural Housing Programme.
“Our programme plays an important role in enabling housing sites to be developed, and we look forward to working with our partners on similar projects in the future.”
