Lockies Case Study

A case study in modern house building.

Through an innovative approach to house building, modern methods of construction have been combined with true integrated social value to develop the Lockies project on previously derelict land. Together Housing is one of the largest housing associations in the North of England, owning and managing 38,000 homes and affecting the lives of 50,000 tenants across 30 local authorities.

Working with South Kirkby Community Association and Wakefield Council, Together Housing developed a vision to transform what was once an area of land subjected to unlicensed tipping and anti-social behaviour, to a place which provides good quality affordable homes, built using structural panels manufactured in a factory. The Lockies is unique in that it is the first affordable housing scheme of its kind where the structural panels were produced by prison inmates, who had a desire to retrain for skills which would assist in their rehabilitation back into society.
