Lovell chosen for £20 million Doncaster regeneration schemes

Morgan Sindall Group’s affordable housing business Lovell has been chosen to deliver two mixed tenure housing developments, together worth £20 million, for Doncaster Council.

The schemes will create 162 homes for affordable rent, shared ownership (through the Lovell Choice shared ownership scheme) and for open market sale.

Lovell will build 123 properties on land at Six Streets, Hyde Park, Doncaster, and 39 homes at Kirby Street, Mexborough. Work is set to start this month (March) with the Six Streets scheme set to be completed in 2015 and the Mexborough development due to be finished in 2013.

At Six Streets, the development will create six bungalows, 12 apartments and 105 two-, three- and four-bedroom houses. They will consist of 86 homes for open market sale; 22 properties for rent through registered social landlord Guinness Northern Counties and 15 available for shared ownership through the Lovell Choice scheme (which allows buyers to purchase a percentage of a property).

The Kirby Street scheme will include 27 homes for open market sale; seven for rent through Guinness Northern Counties and five offered through the Lovell Choice shared ownership scheme.
