Affordable new homes

Published on Tuesday, 1st March 2016

The Council and Orbit Homes have been celebrating the first customers moving into their new homes at Milliner Court and Old Arden Close on Leicester Road, Bedworth. 

"Old Arden" new affordable homes

This high quality new development close to Bedworth town centre occupies the site of the old Arden, most famous as a former ballroom. 38 homes have been built in all, a mix of flats and two to three bedroom houses, with ten available for shared ownership and 28 for affordable rent. All but one of the shared ownership properties have now been sold or reserved.

The development has been supported by the Council, alongside funding from the Homes and Communities Agency. Orbit Heart of England will manage the properties going forward. 

“It is always a pleasure to see through the delivery of new affordable homes in the borough from planning application stage to new tenants moving into their new homes. NBBC has enjoyed a long partnership with Orbit Homes in this regard and long may it continue.”

Cllr Julie Jackson, portfolio holder for Housing

Councillors Bill Hancox and John Haynes, ward members for Bede, also attended the ceremony and said “It’s great news for Bede ward to see these new homes occupied and especially gratifying to see the “Old Arden” name back in use as a reminder of days gone by”.

“We’re truly passionate about providing our customers with a range of affordable housing options, and by offering a mix of both rented and shared ownership properties here at Milliner Court we can help local Bedworth and Nuneaton residents find the right home to suit their needs and aspirations.”

Chris Jones, Development Director at Orbit Homes
