Godwin completes the acquisition of two affordable housing sites in Nottingham

UK property business Godwin Developments announces that it has completed the purchase of two consented brownfield sites from Nottingham City Council, advancing the delivery of 102 much-needed affordable homes in the city.

The land parcels located in the popular Bulwell area, total 5 acres and benefit from detailed planning consent secured by Godwin. The mix of two- and three-bedroom properties will be developed across two neighbouring sites, which have been vacant for 15 years.

The Maple Fields scheme, to be constructed on the former Henry Mellish School site on Kersall Drive, will consist of 45 homes. The Crescent development, located on the previous Piccadilly Playing Field, will provide an additional 57 dwellings for the local community.

All homes will be energy efficient with a minimum EPC B rating, with the potential to achieve EPC A through a connection to a smart energy grid.

Residents will benefit from many nearby amenities, including supermarkets, a doctor’s surgery, retail outlets, eateries, a nursery, and primary and secondary schools. The homes will have excellent public transport links, including the nearby Bulwell train station, a ten-minute walk away, offering fast connections to Nottingham city centre, and regular bus services.

Tim Hart, Director of Partnerships at Godwin Developments, said: “We are delighted to have finalised the acquisition of these two exceptionally well-situated sites in Bulwell, which are ideally located to cater to the needs of future residents. This transaction brings us a step closer to delivering these much-needed affordable properties which will address the growing need for good quality, environmentally friendly and cost-conscious homes in the area.

“We would like to thank Nottingham City Council and advisors Field Fisher, CPMG Architects, Rodgers Leask, CPW, Savills and CBRE for their support with this transaction.”

Throughout the approximate two-year construction period, the developments are set to create over 300 temporary jobs and contribute more than £150,000 towards local community infrastructure.
