The new scheme, owned and managed by NCHA (Nottingham Community Housing Association), located in the north of the town is helping to house local people in homes for social rent and shared ownership.

The new homes include a mix of one-bedroom bungalows and two, three and four-bedroom homes. Nearly all residents have been handed keys to their homes and a new community is beginning to take shape.

With house prices in the area continuing to be higher than the average for the East Midlands, the development offers affordable accommodation for local people who might otherwise have been priced out of the area.

Allan Fisher, Director of Development and Assets at NCHA comments: “This development is testament to our commitment to deliver quality affordable homes that people will be proud to live in. As house prices in the area continue to rise, affordable housing schemes like this are vital to support more people onto the property ladder and allow local people to be able to afford to stay in the area.”

The development, costing circa £6m, contributes to NCHA‘s Strategic Partnership 2018-2023 with Homes England, to deliver new, affordable homes across the East Midlands and East of England. NCHA manage over 2,400 homes in Leicestershire, this being the first site they own and have fully developed in Market Harborough.

NCHA partnered with VentURe Properties Group and Mercer Building Solutions for the build. Designed by IMA Architects these homes have been built to a quality finish.

At the opening event organised by NCHA , they were joined by residents as well as visitors from Harborough Borough Council and Homes England to take a tour of the finished site.

Cllr Jim Knight, Harborough District Council’s Cabinet lead for wellbeing, with responsibility for housing, said: “I am delighted that the council has supported this housing development, which has now been completed and is ready for residents to move in. The council recognises that affordable housing is needed in the Harborough district to ensure it remains a place which residents can comfortably live and work.”
