Final sign off for Gainsborough’s North Parade redevelopment

The redevelopment of North Parade in Gainsborough has been given the final sign off to go ahead.

Social housing provider Acis Group were granted permission in May to demolish and redevelop the North Parade area of the town which has become derelict and a hotbed for antisocial behaviour in recent years.

And now, the redevelopment work can begin after funders Homes England gave the green light.

The area was demolished during the summer – a little earlier than Acis planned due to fire causing the buildings to become too unsafe to be left standing.

Acis Group, which owns and manages more than 7,000 homes across the East Midlands, Yorkshire and the Humber, will bring 27 new family homes to the area. The homes will range from two, three and four-bed properties available for rent and shared ownership.

Work on the development will begin at the end of November with the first homes being available in December 2021.

Rob Main, Head of Property Development at Acis said: “I’m pleased that this part of our regeneration plans in Gainsborough can now begin. This is part of our continued commitment to developing new quality, affordable homes.”

The homes will be built by Vistry Partnerships Yorkshire and will provide much needed regeneration on the site.

Andy Coates, Construction Director at Vistry Partnerships Yorkshire said: “We’re delighted to be starting our third development with Acis, delivering high-quality, family homes and playing our part in the transformation of the area.”
