City MP Stewart Jackson today visited affordable homes with Cross Keys Homes at Burghfield Place, Gunthorpe.
25 new affordable homes have now been provided in Gunthorpe by Cross Keys Homes. The 18-month build programme, with a contract value of nearly £2.4m has provided 12 affordable rented homes and 13 shared ownership properties over two phases as part of our ambitious development programme. The Section 106 site has now been transformed helping 25 families move into a home they can realistically afford. The homes have been built by national developers KeepMoat alongside 62 properties for outright sale and have made a huge improvement to the local area contributing to both its social and economic revival.
Stewart visited the Samroo family to help welcome them to their new and specially adapted home.
Peterborough MP, Stewart Jackson, said:
“It was a real pleasure to meet Kelly and her family and see how their new CKH home has transformed their lives. This development is good for Peterborough, providing much needed affordable homes for the city, and it is fantastic to see the great work CKH are doing in providing quality homes and life opportunities for families right across Peterborough.”
Cross Keys Chief Executive, Claire Higgins, said:
“This has been a fantastic scheme helping so many local families to move into good quality affordable and sustainable homes.”
New tenant, Kelly Samroo and her four children were one of the last families to move into a 4-bedroom semi-detached home on the site. Miss Samroo said:
“We are delighted with our brand new home. It has given us stability and it’s somewhere where we really enjoy living.
“I have a disabled son and thanks to CKH I now have a home that meets the specific needs of our family and can be easily adapted for any future needs. Nathan is so happy here and finally has a home that he can thrive in.”
