Housing provider Ongo has handed over a further 12 homes in Scunthorpe as part of its phased delivery of mixed-tenure developments in the area.
The site on Rowland Road includes a total of 32 two-, three-, and four-bedroom homes, costing in the region of £3.9m.
The homes are being built and handed over in phases, with a mix of shared ownership, rent to buy, and affordable rent options available.
They are set near to shops and amenities, and Ongo says each will be finished to a modern, high-quality specification.
Shared ownership and rent to buy are both designed to help people who are unable to follow the traditional route of buying a home to get on the property ladder.
Ongo says these options are proving “extremely” popular in the area, especially with first-time buyers.
Patricia Stoney, a lettings officer at Ongo, said: “Providing such a range of homes on this site is truly fantastic – we have some great opportunities for people to get on the property ladder too.
“By providing shared ownership and rent to buy, we’re making owning your own home easily accessible for those unable to save a huge deposit. That for us is just so exciting.
“This development shows how far we’ve grown in providing different options for local people, and we can’t wait to get everyone moved in.”
Building work is being carried out by local firm G.S. Kelsey, with Homes England providing funding for the project.
Tina Brown, who moved into one of the homes, said: “I’ve downsized from a bigger Ongo house to this one, and I’m over the moon – my garden is huge, the quality is lovely, and I’m so happy with it.
“I’m going to be moving in as quickly as I can, and I can’t wait to get settled.”
All homes are due for completion by 3 November 2020.
