FORHOUSING COMPLETES WORK ON AFFORDABLE RENT HOMES IN WALKDEN AND LITTLE HULTON AS NEW TENANTS GET SET TO MOVE IN

Local News
ForHousing has completed work on the £5.4 million development of 53 much-needed new homes in Salford.

The homes, which are available for affordable rent, are located in Walkden and Little Hulton, Salford.

In Walkden, an apartment block of 36 one and two-bedroom homes has been built at Rowan House while the Whittlebrook scheme provides 10 much needed two and three-bedroom family homes.

In Little Hulton seven one and two-bedroom bungalows have been completed at Russell Court, offering additional support to allow people to live independently.

The sites replace outdated housing schemes that were demolished back in 2017.

Nigel Sedman, Group Director of Homes, said:

“We are delighted to be welcoming tenants into these newly completed homes. We hope their new home will offer somewhere they can feel safe and plan out a future with new possibilities.

“We have many other developments across the North West in the pipeline as part of our wider commitment to create high quality homes and places that people aspire to live and fuel their potential.”

 

One new tenant, Mr Hoey was offered a home in Rowan House with his wife.

Mr Hoey said:

“I was really happy with the contact and information we received from ForHousing and since moving in, the great service has not stopped; we’ve been constantly kept in the loop. We feel so settled here and we’re so glad we’ve found our forever home.”

ForHousing has developed more than 900 new homes to date and is set to build a further 540 by 2020.

Two of the sites, Russell Court and Whittlebrook, were developed by property services business Liberty, while the third site, Rowan House, was developed by construction firm Strategic Team Group (STG), now part of Galliford Try Partnerships.

The schemes, designed by John McCall Architects, received more than £1 million grant funding from Homes England towards the development of the new properties.
