We are bringing a derelict site back into residential use, kick starting the regeneration of Bolton City Centre.
The plans, which are backed by Homes England, will see us working with Bolton at Home to develop 118 affordable new homes on Chorley Street, next to Queen’s Park.
The site will offer a mix of tenures, including 17 two, three, and four-bed homes for shared ownership. The remainder of the homes will be apartments, split across three blocks.
One of the blocks will include 25 apartments designed for older people; another has 36 apartments for affordable rent; while the largest block has 40 apartments intended for rent-to-buy tenants.
Claire Griffiths Executive Director of Growth and Assets from Irwell Valley Homes said: “We are delighted to be involved in this new development which is a strong partnership between two registered providers in the area. The 118 new affordable homes will make a positive impact on achieving the Great Manchester new homes targets”.
She went on to say: “We have worked closely with Bolton at Home in the development of this prime, centrally located site. This development is part of our wider programme which will see us build over 1000 new homes across Greater Manchester over the next four years.”
Dominic Conway, Director of Development and Growth at Bolton at Home, said: “This is a hugely positive development for Bolton as it brings back into use a derelict site. The other great thing about the scheme is that it’s providing a mix of housing types and tenures to meet local demand for affordable housing.”
