[email protected] Programme, Derbyshire


Blackwell, Derbyshire



Project Overview

Started in 2015, the [email protected] development programme was devised to provide new affordable homes across the Bolsover District.

The scheme aims to deliver 100 high quality, efficient homes over a four-year period and will be built across five locations within the region.

Glinton Avenue, located in Blackwell, Derbyshire is one of the sites chosen to accommodate 6 new dwellings as part of the [email protected] Programme. Formerly the site of the Blackwell Hotel, the new dwellings will consist of five 2 bedroom houses and a 2-bedroom bungalow.

The development is being constructed through a partnership between Bolsover District Council and Robert Woodhead Ltd, having been procured through the Efficiency East Midlands (EEM) initiative.

Alpha Rail Solution

Contracted by Robert Woodhead Limited, Alpha Rail supplied ball top metal railings to act as perimeter fencing and provide a clear boundary between the public pedestrian footpath at the front garden of each property.

 A total of 64m of 900mm high ball top metal railings and three single leaf gates were installed, which was all galvanised and polyester powder coated Black RAL 9005 to prevent rust and protect against elements such as rain and frost.

"The demand for affordable housing is at an all-time high which means working to strict time deadlines to ensure they complete on time. It was therefore imperative to work with sub-contractors like Alpha Rail who are able to work fast, efficiently to manufacture and deliver high quality products."
