Work begins on 47-home affordable housing development in Boston
11 August 2021
Longhurst Group is delighted to see work start on the site of a new fully affordable housing development in Boston.
We’re delivering 47 homes on Norfolk Street on a development known as Caxton Place.
It’s being built on the former Magnadata printing company site in the town and has been part-funded through a grant from Homes England as part of our strategic partnership.
Nick Worboys, Director of Growth, Development and Sales, said she was delighted to see work getting underway on the development.
“There’s a recognised need for housing of this kind within Boston and the surrounding area, so we’re thrilled to see work beginning on this important development,” she added.
“It’ll help deliver much-needed affordable housing in the town, which is aligned with our vision to deliver the homes people want, where they’re needed most.
“Caxton Place will deliver a range of different properties available on a number of tenures, with a mix of shared ownership and rented homes, meaning lots of opportunities will be created for local people to get on the housing ladder.
“By regenerating a brownfield site such as the former Magnadata site, we believe Caxton Place will bring lots of benefits to the town and it’ll connect seamlessly with surrounding developments and architecture, with detailing complementing the local area and appearance.
“I now look forward to seeing work continue and for this exciting scheme to become a reality.”
The site was previously home to Magnadata, the first company to produce magnetic strip tickets for British Rail.
D Brown Builders is the contractor building the properties on behalf of Longhurst Group. Adam Mayer, Commercial Director, said: “We’re excited to have made a start on this project and would like to thank the local community for their co-operation while the site has been mobilised and initial clearance works taken place.
“We’re now looking forward to progressing the works further and providing keys to high quality family homes everyone can be proud of.”
