Families welcomed into 40 new homes in Winterton

A total of 40 homes, costing in the region of £5.2million have been handed over in the small town of Winterton, close to Scunthorpe.

The site includes 21 three-bedroom and seven two-bedroom homes, 12 two-bedroom bungalows and a large communal greenspace for families to enjoy.

Homes are for affordable rent, which is in high demand across the region, and rent to buy, making getting on the property ladder more accessible. Each home has been carefully designed for modern living with functional spaces and lots of natural light.

Anne who moved into one of the homes said: “We needed a bungalow desperately due to ill health and struggling with the stairs.

“This one came up and when we came to view, I burst into tears because I was just so happy. It’s beautiful, I can’t believe how lucky we’ve been.

“The neighbours are nice, we’re surrounded by fields, we’ve got a big garden, walk in shower, everything is so lovely, and it’s made such a difference.”

The site was awarded Secured by Design (SBD) Gold status in August, for its specialist crime cutting design and layout. 

Research shows SBD developments experience up to 87% less burglary, 25% less vehicle crime and 25% less criminal damage.

Georgie McGuire, Development Project Manager said: “This site has been a delight to work on, the homes are beautiful and we’ve had lots of positive feedback from tenants moving in.

“We’re very proud that it’s not only been awarded SBD, it’s achieved the highest level. We know this makes a difference and it’s something we’re always keen to work into the design stage where possible.

“With so much demand for homes to rent and the cost of living making it harder than ever to buy a property, these homes have been very popular. We have an ambitious development programme so please keep an eye on our website for more information.”

Partner Construction were the main contractors on the site, with local companies including Matthew & Tannert Ltd and Birtwhistle Landscaping also supporting.
