Build-to-rent specialist Citra Living has bought 49 homes for rent in Gedling, Nottingham, within a new 1,000-home Keepmoat scheme.

The Park View development, currently under construction, will create a new neighbourhood consisting of two, three and four-bedroom family homes.

Citra, a rental housing owner and operator which is part of Lloyds Banking Group, has agreed to acquire the homes in Arnold Lane, with the first 16 already handed over and ready to rent, and the remaining set to be completed by October.

The majority of the rental homes are two and three-bedroom, with more than 85 per cent reaching an EPC environmental rating of ‘B’.

The Park neighbourhood borders the 240-acre Gedling Country Park.

The partnership between Citra and Keepmoat was announced earlier this year, with the aim of building Citra’s portfolio of purpose-built rental properties. The partnership has already seen Citra invest in 68 homes at Keepmoat’s Coney Green site in Clay Cross, near Chesterfield.

Andy Hutchinson, managing director of Citra Living, said: “It’s great to see our partnership with Keepmoat building momentum, delivering good quality, sustainable housing for young families and workers that grows our footprint in a new area.

“Our focus is on delivering rental options where they’re needed most, and with new job opportunities popping up in Nottingham and across the East Midlands, it is the perfect location for young people and families to put down roots.”

Tristin Willis, regional managing director at Keepmoat, East Midlands, said: “Providing high quality, sustainable homes at accessible prices is a core Keepmoat value.

“We are always on the lookout for new partners that can enable us to continue meeting this objective, and the acquisition of the homes at our Park View development by Citra will help more people in Nottingham’s community to access a new home within close proximity to the city centre.”
