More than 70 new, affordable homes are set to be built in North Somerset thanks to a new deal.
Social housing provider Alliance Homes has signed two significant property deals with developer Taylor Wimpey - that will see 71 homes built in the district.
Building work has already started on site at Youngwood Lane, Nailsea and delivery of the 32 new social rent homes and nine shared ownership is expected between February and November 2023.
The second site involved is Weston Parklands, in Weston.
This site will see 24 homes being delivered for affordable rent and a further six for shared ownership between February 2021 and November 2025.
Director of investment at Alliance, Iain Lock, said: “We’re really pleased to be bringing so many new homes to North Somerset.
"It’s great to be working with Taylor Wimpey, who we’ve worked with before on a number of projects, so we know they deliver good quality.”
