Homes and Communities Agency agrees deal with a local authority to create around 700 new homes.– Kier Partnership Homes has been appointed as the  development partner for the old Manor and Kingsway Hospital site in Derby, comprising a deal worth £100 million over 10 years.

The HCA and Derby Council chose Kier – whose proposals include a business park to support 450 jobs – after preparing the site for development. Of the 700 homes to be built, ‘a number’, yet to be disclosed, will be affordable.

Kier will now work with the healthcare service providers on the site to ensure the new scheme meshes with the provision of essential services. Works are planned to start on site in Autumn 2012.
