Plans to build hundreds more homes in West Lindsey

We are continuing with ambitious development plans in the West Lindsey District, aimed at enhancing the local community and providing quality housing options.

Over 40 homes were complete between April 2023 to March 2024, 90% of which were delivered for rent, and they’re showing no signs of slowing down with 176 to be built.

Those handed over include 11 homes at Thonock Vale, 10 at Marton Meadows and 13 at Foxby Lane, all in Gainsborough.

A further 12, including four for shared ownership were completed at Rose Gardens in Lea. These were constructed using modern timber frame methods, with energy-efficient features such as air source heat pumps and solar panels.

Martin Phillips, Development Manager said: “These developments exemplify our commitment to creating vibrant, sustainable communities that cater to diverse housing need.

“We have huge development plans over the coming years, with lots of these in newer areas for us, like West Lindsey. These are not only for affordable rent, which is in huge demand, but to help people get on the property ladder too.

“We look forward to continuing our collaboration with West Lindsey District Council, who have been a pleasure to work alongside, and of course our fantastic customers and partners who are helping to shape a brighter future the region.”

Sarah Elvin, Homes & Health Team Manager at West Lindsey District Council said: “We are really excited to have Ongo as a partner delivering much needed affordable housing for families across the District. This is something that is identified as a priority in our Corporate Plan.

“The need for affordable housing has never been greater in the difficult financial times we are in and Ongo’s ambitious plans in West Lindsey are assisting us to meet the identified housing needs of our residents. 

“Ongo are a fantastic partner having worked alongside them at every stage of development process through to allocation and we are looking forward to the delivery of this next phase of developments for the people of West Lindsey. “


** Shared Ownership allows for a share of a property (between 25-75%) to be bought and rent to be paid on the rest. Then, when it is affordable, larger shares can be secured until reaching 100%.
