Ashfield Council said it has completed the construction of three three-bedroom homes and two two-bedroom homes on an ‘under-used council-owned car park’ on Stoney Street.

The authority said the houses have been designed to minimise heating costs to help with climate change and fuel poverty, with added insulation in the walls and roof, windows with high thermal efficiency, and increased air tightness through joint taping.

They join the council’s growing portfolio of homes, with four bungalows on The Beeches, Skegby, and The Poplars, Sutton recently completed and now occupied, and the first four properties of 22 being built on Davies Avenue, Sutton, close to completion.

Ground has also been broken on Midland Road, Sutton, which will welcome 20 new homes in 2023.

Coun Jason Zadrozny, council leader, said: “The homes on Stoney Street are wonderful and will be quality homes for future generations.

“They have been finished to such a high standard with quality fixtures and finishes.

“I’m sure the new tenants will be over the moon with them.”

Coun Tom Hollis, executive lead member for council and social housing, said “The council has plans to build more than 100 council houses over the next few years and we have made excellent progress with this in the space of a year.

“We have completed 24 houses so far. This number will continue to rise as we hand over even more quality homes in the coming months. I’m extremely proud of this council’s work to bring these projects together and deliver for the people of Ashfield.”
