Accent Housing is providing homes within the Peterborough City Council area through a S106 planning obligation. Accent’s 57 new homes, a defined mix of 40 homes for affordable rent and 17 for shared ownership form part of a larger development of 190 new homes.
The new development at Lawrence Road, Wittering will provide 12 one-bed houses, 24 two-bed houses, two three-bed houses and one four-bed house. The 17 homes available for shared ownership will be three-bed houses.
Work started on site in November 2020 and the first properties handed over in October 2021 with final completions expected in October 2024.
Accent’s total investment is £7,184,542 million. No grant funding was allocated.
The scheme is a development by Allison Homes. Accent are the chosen social landlord after successfully bidding for the affordable properties on the site. The properties are being built to Allison Homes standards and will have a modern appearance with the use of brick detailing and porches.
All units will achieve an EPC ‘B’ rating.
The village of Wittering is located just off the A1 motorway three miles from the historic market town of Stamford and approximately nine miles from the Cathedral City of Peterborough.
