A HOUSING developer is inviting Wombwell residents to 'meet the builder' at a community information event today.

Affordable housing developer Lovell has started work on building 50 properties on Newsome Avenue for residents aged over 55.

The development will create 28 one-bedroom and 22 two-bedroom apartments, plus communal facilities and landscaped grounds.

The developer will be at the youth centre on the same road between 11am and 2pm to answer local people's questions about the project.

Details of the scheme, traffic plans and information about work placement and site visit opportunities will be available.

Lovell operations manager Simon Hogg said: "We’re inviting people who live nearby to come along and meet our team. They can find out more about the building work and ask any questions they have about the construction programme."

If you are unable to attend the event but would like further details, please contact Lovell's resident liaison manager Diane Tavernier on 07811 147694.
