Esh hands over £3m affordable homes development

Great Places Housing Group has taken possession of Fir View Gardens in Sheffield, close to the Earl Marshal recreation ground.

Esh Construction delivered the project on a vacant piece of land off Osgathorpe Drive.

The professional team included Poole Dick Associates, architect Bowker Sadler and Sutcliffe.

The two and three-bedroom homes have been built for affordable rent and include associated parking and landscaping.

Esh Construction operations director Simon Woodward said: “Fir View was the first contract we were awarded through the Innovation Chain North framework, and it’s proved a real success for Esh in delivering energy efficient homes while providing added benefit to the community through school engagement, volunteering and community funding.”

Fir View Gardens is one of the developments that Great Places Housing Group is delivering in South Yorkshire as part of the housing association’s commitment to build additional affordable homes in the area. Other projects include 50 homes at Riverdale Park in Doncaster and 51 apartments at London Road close to Sheffield city centre.

Nick Gornall, director of development at Great Places Housing Group, said: “Fir View Gardens is the latest in a series of projects for Great Places in South Yorkshire where we continue to experience high demand and need for our homes.”
