A NEW £3.9 million development of affordable homes in Ryton is underway.
The Deeley Group, in partnership with Waterloo Housing Group, Rugby Borough Council and Homes England, is creating 21 affordable homes on a brownfield site in the village.
The former coal yard, situated off High Street, will feature a mix of two and three-bedroom homes with some available under shared ownership while others will be offered on an affordable rent basis.
Work is underway and the development is set for completion next spring, with the homes themselves constructed using an off-site manufactured timber-frame system.
Rugby borough housing spokeswoman Coun Emma Crane said: “Working with our partners, we aim to increase both the number and choice of properties available in the borough while supporting sustainable development.
“The development of the Old Coal Yard in Ryton-on-Dunsmore supports this vision, bringing a brownfield site back into use by building a range of affordable new homes for rent and shared ownership.”
