The two former NHS sites at Stonelea and Thornebury on Union Road will be turned into 79 residential units by developers Peabody, comprising 36 for social rent, and the remaining 43 allocated for shared ownership.

The homes will be designed by Alan Camp Architects and built by Keepmoat Regeneration.

Council leader Clare Coghill was there to oversee the start of work. She said: "I'm really pleased that these wonderful new homes are being built for families. One of my priorities as the leader of the council is to make sure that everyone has a roof over their heads and providing affordable, high-quality housing is vital to achieving this".
