Westcliff housing project draws to a close

Ongo has marked a milestone, completing its 10,000th house as the £9m Westcliff housing and regeneration project draws to a close.

41 of the Scunthorpe-based properties are yet to be handed over, but are scheduled to be ready before the end of the year.

The huge project has seen new social housing and rent-to-buy homes built alongside various retail units.

60 of the houses, which are a mixture of two and three-bedroom homes, have already been handed over this year, including at least eight at the end of August.

Martin Phillips, Development Manager at Ongo, said:

“This is a monumental achievement for us and one I’m proud to have supported.

“Giving people a place to call home is at the heart of everything we do here at Ongo, so to be able to do this for 10,000 families is just brilliant,” he said.

“The homes we build are much needed and make a real difference to the lives of local people. They are great quality, and we’re delighted to provide more options than ever.

“We now offer rented, shared ownership, rent to buy and outright sale homes, meaning there is a type of home to suit the needs of everybody. Whether you’re looking for an affordable place to rent or you want to get on the property ladder, we’re here to help.

“We have exciting and ambitious plans to build more fantastic homes, so keep an eye out.”

The project is being jointly funded by Ongo and Homes England.

Now, Ongo is planning its first dementia care scheme, which is due to be completed next year.

The company has committed to investing £83m, and building 225 new homes annually for the next ten years.
