Council Leader breaks new ground with regeneration of Stonebridge Park
A ground-breaking ceremony marked the next phase in the regeneration of Stonebridge Park as the leader of Nottingham City Council cut the turf on a new £10.9m scheme, which includes investment from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) to build more than 100 homes in St Ann’s.
The development will see 111 high-quality new properties constructed by award-winning housebuilder Keepmoat as part of the Stonebridge Park Masterplan, which will also include the provision of new road infrastructure and enhanced green space.
Council Leader, Jon Collins, was joined by fellow St Ann’s Councillor, Dave Liversidge, and Shaun Fielding, Head of Land and Partnerships for Keepmoat in the Midlands, for the ground breaking ceremony on Jersey Gardens.
The regeneration scheme has so far led to the demolition of 252 poor-quality homes in St Ann’s and is set to give a new lease of life to this part of Nottingham.
Transforming Nottingham's neighbourhoods is a key priority for the city council and these proposals have been developed with residents and stakeholders over several years to produce the Stonebridge Park Masterplan, which aims to improve and revitalise the estate.
Council Leader, Jon Collins, Portfolio Holder for Strategic Regeneration and Community Safety, said: “Quality homes and better green spaces are an important part of our plans for the future of Nottingham. This is one of three such regeneration schemes that Keepmoat are part of in our city, and I also look forward to seeing the work in Lenton and Bulwell Forest when they are complete.”
Shaun Fielding, Head of Land and Partnerships for Keepmoat in the Midlands, said: “Providing new high-quality housing in Stonebridge Park will help deliver the regeneration the area needs.
“Transforming neighbourhoods is a key priority for Nottingham City Council so Keepmoat is delighted to be working alongside them to transform Stonebridge Park.
“The fact that we are working with the council on another regeneration scheme is a testament to our work in the city already and shows that transforming neighbourhoods is a huge priority here.”
