The development is adjacent to Accent’s existing scheme at Century Square, a mixed tenure scheme of 79 homes completed in 2008.

Located minutes from Lincoln Road, Alma Road offers numerous small convenience stores and restaurants nearby. There are many local health and well-being facilities in the neighbourhood, such as dentists, opticians, hairdressers and medical centre.

Peterborough city centre is a 15-minute walk, or a short bus ride, away. The scheme is also close to Peterborough railway station.

The new homes will be built by Lindum Group in partnership with Peterborough City Council.

The new homes will all achieve an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) ‘A’ rating.

This will be achieved using a “Fabric First” approach with Photo Voltaic (PV) panels also being installed. This rating will reduce the energy costs for Accent’s residents, helping to tackle fuel poverty.

All six ground floor dwellings will meet Part M4(Category 2) of the current building regulations. Homes built to this standard are considered 'accessible and adaptable dwellings’, potentially suitable for a wide range of residents.

The new homes will be part funded by Homes England Strategic Partnership (Wave 2) in order to deliver the Government’s agenda for new homes.
