A DILAPIDATED pub is to be transformed into 20 new flats as sites in a Nottinghamshire borough are brought back to life.
The Grove, in Mansfield Road, Daybrook, is to be converted as part of a scheme by Gedling Borough Council to create more low-cost homes.
This is great news for Gedling and Vernon expressed his thanks to both Gedling Borough Council and Nottingham Community Housing Association for taking these projects forward.
The authority has pledged £114,000 for a wider project which will see £5.6 million pumped into local regeneration. Gedling borough residents will get first choice on the total of 60-plus new homes – a mixture of for-sale and to-let.
Councillor Henry Wheeler, the council's portfolio holder for health and housing, said: "This shows the council's firm commitment to tackle the current housing crisis and is a small but significant step in delivering affordable homes at affordable rents."
A former play area in Dunstan Street, Netherfield, has been earmarked for development as part of the scheme.
