Work is due to start this month on 40 affordable homes in Milcombe, Oxfordshire.

Living Space Housing and Paradigm Housing will develop a 3.5-acre site off Oak Farm Drive which will be for affordable rent or shared ownership.

The homes are due to be available before the end of 2021 and are designed to meet the Government’s Future Homes Standard for lower carbon emissions. Air Source Heat Pumps will be installed at all 40 new homes.

The team includes Betts Associates as engineering consultant, Birmingham-based UMAA Architecture and Arcadis as employer’s agent.

Steve Davies, managing director of Living Space Housing, said: “This is our first development in Oxfordshire, our first collaboration with Paradigm Housing, and the first scheme where we’ve taken the proactive decision to introduce Air Source Heat Pumps, so we are especially pleased to announce this key addition to our rapidly growing development portfolio.

“The whole team is working exceptionally hard to be in a position to commence construction as soon as possible, in order to meet the shortage of quality new homes in North Oxfordshire.

“We are actively seeking additional immediate and longer-term development opportunities and have the funding in place to progress these deals. We would be delighted for agents, developers and landowners to get in touch and explore how Living Space Housing can offer a sound and viable solution for your residential land.”
