Affordable homes in Nettleham

Four shared ownership homes and six affordable rented homes are being built in popular rural village Nettleham in a partnership with Ongo and Stirlin Developments.

This is part of a larger, 40 home development – Lodge Lane, which is being developed by Homes by Stirlin, the residential division of Lincoln-based Stirlin Developments. Stirlin is a property development and construction company specialising in bespoke commercial and residential properties.

The aim is to provide affordable housing options for the people of Lincolnshire and will be sold and rented through North Lincolnshire housing provider, Ongo. Ongo currently owns and manages 10,000 homes in North Lincolnshire, with other developments recently built for affordable rent in South Yorkshire and Lincoln.

These homes in Nettleham will support people to get on the property ladder with Ongo’s shared ownership homes, or be able to provide an affordable home which will be rented through Ongo Homes.

Martin Phillips, Development Manager at Ongo, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Stirlin Developments on the Lodge Lane project, to be able to provide homes for people living in and around the Nettleham area.

“Offering affordable housing options in sought after area such as Nettleham is rare, so we’re excited to be building homes for sale and affordable rent in such a popular village.

“The homes for sale under our shared ownership scheme provide a solution for those people wanting to get on the property ladder but don’t have the large deposit saved that is usually required.”

Due to be completed in June 2018, the homes will be a mixture of two and three bed semi detached all with modern open plan living and attention to detail a key element of these fantastic homes.

James Kirby, Managing Director at Stirlin Developments, said: “We’re delighted to partner with Ongo to deliver a mix of shared ownership and affordable rented homes in the beautiful village
of Nettleham.

“Lodge Lane is a true embodiment of Homes by Stirlin’s ethos – putting exceptional quality, created by Lincolnshire people, at the heart of every home.

“The variety of properties within the development ensures that a range of tastes and budgets can be catered for, without compromising the quality of each property.”

The four homes for sale through Ongo’s shared ownership scheme will be available to offer local people an affordable way to get on the property ladder. When purchasing a shared ownership home, you will own a percentage of the home and pay rent on the rest to Ongo. Once you have purchased your home you will then have the option of purchasing further shares.
