100 new homes in Top Valley and Bestwood council developments

Nottingham City Council has announced that new tenants have now moved into 100 new homes across its three new-build developments in Bestwood and Top Valley.

The homes are the latest to be completed on the council’s behalf as part of the Building A Better Nottingham programme and let at affordable rents to people with a proven housing need on its waiting and transfer lists.

Two of the sites have been built by Lovell Partnerships and one by Countryside Partnerships, part of the Vistry Group. The homes are at three different sites – Eastglade in Top Valley, site of the old Eastglade school; Beckhampton in Bestwood, at land off Beckhampton Road; and Ridgeway in Top Valley.

Work is also under way at a fourth site at Padstow, also in Bestwood, on the site of the former Padstow school and its playing fields.

When construction is completed across all three sites next year, almost 350 new homes will have been built and let to families and individuals on the council’s waiting list.

Councillor Jay Hayes, Portfolio Holder for Housing and Ward Councillor for Bestwood at Nottingham City Council, said: “I’m delighted to see these new houses being made into homes by people who have waited a long time for them.

“What we’re doing at Bestwood isn’t just building new homes, it’s creating new communities that everyone who lives in the area will benefit from.”
