Located off Harpers Road on the outskirts of Lincoln, Roman Gate Court will consist of 24 one-bedroom apartments with communal facilities to complement other nearby developments.
Lincoln firm Lindum Group have been appointed to proceed with the construction of Roman Gate Court. The site boasts a wide range of amenities nearby including the Nettleham Fields shopping centre, supermarket, fitness centre and places to eat and drink.
LACE Housing’s CEO Nick Chambers said: “Despite the many challenges experienced over the past year, we are delighted that works have now begun on a further development of 40 much needed homes for older people in Greater Lincolnshire.
“This could not have been achieved without the support of the local authorities, the local community, local contractors and Homes England. Designed for those over the age of 55, both developments will complete during spring 2023.”
