Construction work on 71-home development in Retford set to begin

Nottingham Market Square and Council House

A new £19m residential housing project in Nottinghamshire is set to commence in summer 2021, as Taggart Homes begins leading works on the site. 

The north Nottinghamshire development known as ‘Bracken Lane’, located in the county’s old market town of Retford, will be made up of two, three, four and five-bed properties. The cheapest of the 71 properties will be priced at £195,000 while the most expensive are set to cost £475,000. 

The development is set to be completed by winter 2020 and will comprise a variety of property types including both detached and semi-detached. In typical Taggart Homes fashion, all gardens will be landscaped while the inner properties will be finished to the finest quality with high specification fixtures and fittings throughout. 

Michael Taggart, chief executive officer of Taggart Homes, said: “Bracken Lane will be an attractive new development bringing high quality homes to a desirable location in north Nottinghamshire. The range of properties will suit all types of homebuyers – from first timers, to families and those looking to downsize. As with all of our developments, high spec fixtures and fittings, quality materials and meticulous attention to detail are paramount and will make these homes a modern, wonderful place to live in a location that offers so much.”

The Bracken Lane development lies within walking distance of the historical market town of Retford – a desirable location offering a range of amenities including a town centre and an array of high street shops and independent bars, pubs and restaurants.

In addition, the development will have accessible links to local transport routes such as Retford train station and the A1 motorway nearby, while homes on the northern side of Bracken Lane to the south east of Retford will be partially enclosed by established mixed native hedgerows and mature trees.
