The developer is building 87 homes on a 2.4 hectare site off High Street, with the first properties due to be completed Spring/Summer next year.
The development, which will be known as The Riddings, will comprise a mixture of two and three-bedroom homes, with 41 of the properties being provided as affordable housing through affordable rent and shared ownership schemes.

Most of the 46 homes being sold on the open market will have access to two parking spaces.

It is the first development to be built by Linden Homes East Midlands in Derbyshire, and the national housebuilder is hoping to release the first homes on to the market in early 2019.

Linda Huntingdon, Head of Sales for Linden Homes East Midlands, said: “We are delighted to be building our first development in Derbyshire and are looking forward to delivering a range of high-quality new homes for Alfreton.

“We have worked very hard to design a scheme which will benefit the whole community, and as well as providing much-needed new homes to meet local demand, The Riddings will also feature attractive landscaped areas and new tree planting.  

“The range of two and three-bedroom homes available at The Riddings will present many first-time buyers with the opportunity to step on to the property ladder in a spacious, energy efficient home.

“With its close proximity to both the M1 and the A38, coupled with our high build quality, we fully expect The Riddings to be a popular development and we look forward to officially launching the site in the new year.”
