New development opens in Bolsover

KIER Partnership Homes have successfully opened their Millrise development – its new, exclusive homes development of just 13 stunning cottage-style two, three and four-bedroom homes in Bolsover.

Millrise was formally opened by Coun Bowman, cabinet member for housing at Bolsover District Council, and joining him to mark the occasion and cut the ribbon was Allan Jeffrey, a volunteer from Kier Partnership Homes’ nominated charity, Help for Heroes.

Kier also presented Allan with a cheque for £1,000 in support of the charity and collected additional donations for the charity from guests on the day.

The pretty cottage style of these homes makes them a perfect match for first-time buyers.

Through FirstBuy, the government-supported scheme, where you pay from just 80 per cent but own 100 per cent, meaning you can buy a new home at Millrise from only £97,596. Chris King, Kier Partnership Homes’ managing director, said: “I’m very excited about Millrise, the first new homes that Kier Partnership Homes has designed at Bolsover.

“There is a pleasing amount of local interest in this development, as well as from other areas including Sheffield.

“Millrise is a small, but significant, part of our investment in the area, and lays the groundwork for our forthcoming schemes at nearby Langwith Junction and New Houghton.”

Coun Bowman added: “This is a prime example of what happens when people work together and there has undoubtedly been a lot of hard work behind the scenes.

“Millrise is a superb development and the quality of these properties is excellent.”

“It will form a mixed community and that is what we are all about at Bolsover.”

We are extremely pleased that Kier is here and we will support them. I look forward to the homes selling and people seeing the benefits of what has been achieved here.”
