Council invests in Ripley affordable homes development

Amber Valley Borough Council is investing £375,000 supporting a new development which will create 60 new affordable homes on the old Evans Concrete site at Peasehill Road in Ripley.

The development, which it is hoped will be completed in the summer of 2016, will be delivered by Registered Provider, Dales Housing, who will be investing over £5m in the scheme. The development will also be supported by the Homes and Communities Agency who will be providing over £1million in grant.

The development will not only provide much-needed affordable accommodation, but during its building will offer employment and training opportunities and deliver benefits to local business.

Cllr Tony Holmes, Amber Valley Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing and Public Health, commented: “I am delighted the Council is able to work with Dales Housing to deliver such a fantastic development. We are really looking forward to providing quality, affordable housing for people in Ripley."

Gerald Taylor, Chief Executive at Dales Housing’s parent company Acclaim Housing Group, said: “This development demonstrates our commitment to providing high quality homes at affordable rents.

“We are excited about extending our coverage to Ripley and look forward to working with the Council and other providers to help meet the demand for affordable housing in the area.”
