Regeneration development officially opened in Gainsborough

Local housing provider, Acis Group have officially opened the regenerated area of North Parade in Gainsborough.

The new housing development, now known as Thorndyke View, was opened in a ceremony held on Friday 25 November.

Members of Acis Group and the local council were in attendance to celebrate the completion of the regeneration project.

And the formalities were completed with Leader of the Council, Cllr Owen Bierley, cutting the ribbon to mark the end of the works on the site.

Acis Group, who own and manage over 7,000 homes in the East Midlands, Yorkshire and the Humber, have brought 27 new family homes to the area as part of their ongoing redevelopment works in Gainsborough.

The regeneration of the former North Parade site was the first part of a trio of works in Gainsborough – including the Riverside Walk and the Bowling Green Road development in the town.
Joined on the day by the architects, WSM Acanthus, the site was also part funded by Homes England.

At the opening, Acis Group’s Director of Property, Mark Jones said: “We’re delighted that this part of our regeneration plans in Gainsborough has been completed and officially opened.

“We are committed to developing new quality, affordable homes in the town we call home.”

Cllr Owen Bierley, Leader of the Council attended the event along with ward members in the area. He said: “It’s exciting to see the regeneration of this site contributing to the balanced community in the heart of this area. The regeneration has transformed the area and is offering local people the opportunity to access much-needed affordable housing in these tough financial times. Seeing investment such as this from both Acis and Homes England demonstrates what can be achieved when there is great partnerships and the ambition to strive for improved housing for our residents.”

The homes, built by Vistry Partnerships Yorkshire, have provided much needed regeneration on the site alongside the homes built on neighbouring John Jenkinson Close in 2008.

Andrew Poyner, Managing Director at Vistry Partnerships Yorkshire said, “It’s fantastic to see the results of years of planning and construction leading to a thriving local community. It’s been our pleasure to work in partnership with Acis Group once more and support the regeneration of Gainsborough.”
