New housing development in Stainforth

A neighbourhood has been successfully regenerated with the completion of a new £4million housing development by Jephson Homes Housing Association

Jephson’s new Stonyford Drive development, off Station Road, Stainforth, has been built on wasteland which was formerly occupied by Waverley Working Men’s Club.

The area has now been completely transformed with the completion of 33 new homes, of which 27 are for rent and six for intermediate rent/shared ownership. They are made up of a mix of two and three-bedroom properties.

One of the first residents to move in was Julie Hindson and her husband Edward, and their three children Jade, Edward and Conner.

Julie said of her new home: “It is absolutely brilliant, I can’t fault it whatsoever. The neighbours are all great, everyone gets along really well and it is a really safe area which is good for the children. The area had been very run down before, but it is now so much better with this new estate.”

Jephson Development and Property Asset Manager Alison Day said: “We are delighted with the completion of this new development, which marks the start of housing regeneration for this area of Stainforth. It has provided much needed new affordable homes right in the heart of the town centre with all its facilities on our residents’ doorstep.”

The homes were developed by BKL Interiors – High Back Homes and were part funded with a £2million grant from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).
