Ongo build over 130 homes in a year
From April 2019 to March 2020 Ongo has built a total of 134 new homes and are showing no signs of slowing down, despite the coronavirus outbreak causing delays.
The developments, costing in the region of £16m are part of their promise to build hundreds of much needed affordable, rented homes, along with a variety of options to help people get on the property ladder and become home owners.
Highlights include the completion of their first rent to buy homes at Collum Avenue in Scunthorpe, the redevelopment of Albert Marson Court in Scunthorpe, which included 27 new three and four bed houses, and the refurbishment a large home in Westcliff, which had previously featured in local news for negative crime related incidents.
They’ve also delivered a range of specialist, accessible bungalows and houses, more shared ownership homes, and have added a further 36 homes in West Lindsey. Other schemes include Chesleigh House, a development of new apartments in Gainsborough for people over the age of 55 and the start of a brand new dementia care scheme in Scunthorpe, which is the first of its kind in our area.
Another huge achievement for Ongo was the success of their first homes for sale at Owlet Mews, Blyton. All 14 homes received a huge amount of interest and were completed to a luxurious finish, paving the way for their next lot of homes for sale in Corringham, just three miles from Gainsborough.
A total of 216 Ongo homes are currently under construction, with completion due between April 2020 and March 2021, and work on a further 57 is to begin. As part of their commitment to supporting local businesses, they are working with contractors including G.S Kelsey, T.G Sowerby, CPL Developments and Moores Facilities Management on these homes.
It’s in this timeframe Ongo will also introduce an exciting new development of carbon neutral homes, which will see new technologies incorporated, to reduce the emission rate to zero.
Martin Phillips, Development Manager at Ongo said: “Having the ability to build such a fantastic range of homes and offer more options to buy and rent is something we’re very proud of.
“All are built with local people in mind, so we make sure we’re creating homes they can thrive in, especially our specialist, adapted schemes that allow people to live independently.
“We’ve got ambitious development plans for the future with innovative ideas, like the carbon neutral homes, along with a firm commitment to use local contractors, so together we can build strong communities and provide much needed places to live.”
