THESE spacious and airy new homes are the first of 2,300 new affordable properties for sale and rent which are to be built on derelict sites across Sheffield to help address the city’s chronic housing shortage.
The artists’ impressions of new homes to be built off Park Grange Road, Norfolk Park, in the Falstaff area of Parson Cross, and at Shirecliffe, have been released by Sheffield Council before the three schemes go before planning boards for approval over the coming month.
Some properties have been designed to blend in where close to surrounding, older properties, such as in Shirecliffe, while those at the other two sites are more modern in style.
The three schemes will provide a total of 305 homes – 142 at Falstaff, 116 at Norfolk Park and 47 at Shirecliffe.
The homes are being built by a consortium involving Sheffield Council, contractor Keepmoat and housing association, Great Places Housing Group.
If approved, construction at Falstaff and Norfolk park would begin in July and Shirecliffe next year.
