New Lincoln housing development enters final phase

Almost done: A big housing development in west Lincoln has reached the final stage of completion.

A development scheme to build new canal view homes at The River Side Oasis site is entering the final stages of development.

The site of the former E2V factory off Carholme Road was developed by Linden Homes, aiming to build high-quality new housing in Lincoln.

The scheme, which built 255 new homes, has proven popular since its launch in September 2011.

Of the 255 homes, Linden has 58 remaining – predominantly two bedroom apartments and houses.

Linden Homes will now complete the construction of the final homes to be added to the Oasis development.

Chris Roads, sales director at Linden Homes said: “Apart from the convenience of the location in terms of being close to the centre of Lincoln and enjoying canal side views – the development is perfect for the first time buyer or people looking to downsize.

“Linden Homes has had a long and successful association with Lincoln – with a number of previous developments in and around the city – including Bracebridge Heath and others within walking distance of the city centre.”

The development scheme has been praised by Lincoln MP Karl McCartney, who recently visited the site.

He said: “It was great to have had the opportunity to visit Linden’s site, which has positively transformed the area. I was impressed by the scheme which I thought was both attractive in design and sympathetic to the existing residents in the area.

“It is a beautiful setting next to the canal and a fantastic development.”
