New affordable homes announced at Clevedon site
Alliance Homes will deliver up to 60 affordable homes on an allocated housing site in the centre of Clevedon.
The Millcross site is to be purchased from NHS Property by North Somerset Council in a back-to-back deal with Alliance Homes.
The purchase will be through the government ‘one public estate’ scheme, which allows public sector bodies to have the opportunity to acquire surplus public sector land in advance of it being placed on the open market.
The Millcross site in Clevedon was previously intended to be developed for a new community hospital. In 2018 it was allocated in the North Somerset Sites and Allocations Plan for 60 homes, which the housing provider has confirmed they will provide as 100% affordable housing.
Leader of the Council, Don Davies, said: “This site has the potential to deliver not just affordable housing, but also meet our ambition that residents have access to a quality home that is affordable to them.”
Iain Lock, Director of Investment from Alliance Homes said: “We’re delighted to be working with the Council to bring much-needed new homes to Clevedon. Redeveloping this vacant site will not only contribute to the supply of new affordable housing in the town, it will also support our objective to create great places where people want to live.
“It’s an exciting project, and whilst we haven’t agreed a final scheme design at this stage, we’re committed to making sure what we build reflects the current and future needs of the local community”.
