Lilian visited the William Woodsend Almshouses on Derby Road Nottingham recently, to see the development of six new properties NCHA has built called William Woodsend Court. The six new properties consist of six one-bedroom flats which are available for affordable rent. They are located around a central tree offering a communal garden area which Lilian fittingly described the site as “an oasis of calm and tranquillity”. During her visit Lilian emphasised the need for more high-quality affordable housing in the local area. She was delighted to see that NCHA had refurbished the existing almshouses and built six new flats on a site that she had once assumed was derelict.
Mike Andrews, Chief Executive at NCHA, said:
“I, and the rest of our Board, were delighted to be able to show Lilian Greenwood the new properties we have built at William Woodsend Court. We remain committed to building new affordable housing to play our part in helping to address the ongoing housing crisis in the UK. It is vital that housing remains high on the agenda for this general election, and beyond, regardless of the outcome."
The visit was part of National Housing Week campaign "Working together for great homes".
