WORK has finally started on the project to transform part of Hyde Park, Doncaster, with a new estate.
Doncaster Central MP Rosie Winterton visited the Six Streets site off Carr House Road to see workmen busy preparing the ground for new affordable homes.
As part of the programme of refurbishment and development at the Six Streets scheme, the Homes and Communities Agency has provided £311,270 to deliver 16 affordable homes.
They will be built by Guinness Northern Counties and Lovell on the site of terraced housing which used to be on South Street.
The development is an important building block in the transformation of the area and represents part of £8.775 million investment over the next three years from the last Government’s National Affordable Housing Programme to create 194 new homes.
The scheme will provide 150 homes to rent and 44 low cost home ownership homes.
Rosie said: “There is always a need for more affordable homes so this investment is really welcome.”
