Applications for 37 brand new homes on Station Road in Scunthorpe have gone live this month, with keys being handed over just weeks after, in time for Christmas.

The site is made up of 32 two, three and four-bedroom homes for affordable rent, along with a further five three-bedroom houses available as rent to buy.

Living in a rent to buy property means that for the first five years, tenants pay less than market rent, to allow time to save towards a deposit. It’s a national initiative to support people to get on the property ladder that do not have enough saved.

The homes are based in a sought after area, right in the heart of Scunthorpe town Centre, with schools, shops and leisure facilities within walking distance.

Each will come with off-road parking, electric vehicle charging points, and patio doors to the rear onto a private garden, along with bird boxes and hedgehog runs.

Costing in the region of £5 million, this development is funded jointly by us and Homes England, with handover set for December 2021. 

Georgie McGuire, Development Project Manager here at Ongo said: “We’re delighted with how well this project is going, and how much of a difference it’s going to make to the area.

“The homes are on a piece of land that was unused and pretty unsightly for a long time, so it’s great for us to build much needed, new family homes on there instead.

“Because of the central location and mix of larger properties, we think they’ll be super popular which is great. It’s also exciting they’ll be ready in time for Christmas so families can get moved in and enjoy the festive season.

“It’s a truly fantastic scheme and we cannot wait to hand keys over.”

GS Kelsey are the main contractor on site, with other local sub-contractors including Overhall, Ashbridge Roofing, East Ferry Timber and West Lindsey Landscapes bringing the build together.
