Final homes in £9m project complete
The final phase in the Westcliff regeneration project is complete, bringing our total number of homes to a milestone figure of 10,000.
In total, 41 new homes and a community hub, The Arc, have been built as part of the £9million project, supported by North Lincolnshire Council and Homes England.
The Arc also includes a cafe, Little Owls nursery, youth zone, enterprise zone and a Post Office. This building paved the way for several new businesses to open including a Tesco store, Coop Pharmacy, fish and chip shop and a beauty salon.
Demolition to make way for these buildings began back in 2018, with GS Kelsey as the main contractor for The Arc, and TG Sowerby Developments Ltd for the homes.
There are a mixture of two and three-bedroom houses, two bedroom bungalows, and two specialist three-bedroom wheelchair bungalows, with tenants now all moved in.
Steve Hepworth, Chief Exec said: “The area was in need of time and investment and we’re pleased to say it has been completely transformed. It’s brought a new sense of pride to the community in Westcliff and it has certainly been one of the biggest highlights for Ongo since it was formed in 2007.
“We want those living in the area to know that although this development is coming to an end, we are not leaving Westcliff behind and our work will still continue within The Arc and the community.
“Thank you to everyone for making the journey so special and we can’t wait to see what’s next for people on the estate.”
We have a huge presence within the Westcliff estate from Housing Officers helping to tackle anti-social behavior, members of our Lettings team helping to find a home, our youth mentors running activities for children and events to help tackle social isolation and bring people of all ages together. Our staff also provide training, employment support and advice to people in the area.
