Construction at Hillcrest Gardens is set to begin in June 2021, with the first new homes for sale released in October 2021 and show homes expected to open in January 2022.

The first new homeowners are expected to move into their homes in spring 2022.

Wayne Sutton, operations director at Gleeson said:“We are delighted to be bringing 95 much-needed homes to Gainsborough.

"This is our first development in West Lindsey, following great success in East Lindsey, which we are expecting to replicate by bringing our affordable, quality homes to the area for young first-time buyers and key workers.

“We are pleased to be supporting the local area by improving public open space, ecology and the health care and education infrastructure of Gainsborough, as well as supporting the community by employing a workforce on site that will be made up of local labour and contractors.”

Gleeson is seeking local labour and sub-contractors to work on this development, including applications from young people who are interested in joining the Gleeson apprenticeship scheme.
