Plan of new housing development at Wood Fold

Story: Rohan Francis

14 affordable new homes for rent are under construction on land next to the former Stanley Tools factory on Rutland Road, after planners gave the go-ahead in March this year.

The development, which is located next to Stanley Fields open space, includes the construction of 2 four-bed, 7 three-bed and 5 two-bed houses, with residents' parking on Wood Fold and within the site, on a new extension of Woodside Lane.

Local social landlord, Arches Housing, is the main developer behind the scheme, assisted by a grant from the Housing Corporation.

The plans involve the removal of 17 Poplar trees, however, the developer will have to contribute £17,000 to recreational facilities, including improvements to nearby open space.
