Hartford housing development receives planning approval
Cheshire West and Chester Council have granted planning permission for a new housing development to be built on the site of the former Hartford Campus in Northwich.
Your Housing Group will build 108 homes in partnership with the Lane End Group. The plans for two, three and four-bedroom homes, including bungalows, are for both shared ownership and rent to buy. The development will provide much needed quality affordable housing for the area in a beautifully landscaped setting with public open space. Remediation work on the site is underway with demolition being scheduled for the summer.
Richard Jones, Director of Growth for Your Housing Group said; “We are really pleased to be able to invest in Hartford with new homes that offer housing choices for everybody within a community landscape. This development will provide much-needed affordable homes and enable many local people to take their first step on the property ladder through shared ownership.”
Richard Harrison, Lane End Managing Director, said: “This is a really important scheme for Lane End Group. The team have been working hard on this for several months and I’m pleased that Cheshire West and Chester Council have approved our application. We are already engaged in the area, building over 500 new homes in Delamere, Winsford, Lostock Gralam, and Helsby, so we know the landscape and are working in the community through our social enterprise, New Beginnings. Our team will continue our community focussed approach to construction which we hope will breathe new life into this part of Northwich.”
Nick Cumberland, Senior Specialist at Homes England, said: “Homes England is committed to working with partners to deliver more homes faster, helping communities and providing affordable housing using funding from the Shared Ownership and Affordable Homes Programme. It’s great to see our funding helping to deliver affordable homes in Northwich and we look forward to seeing the development take shape.”
A further application has also been submitted for 20 additional properties on the same site. Anyone interested in a property should call 0160 6822647 for more information or visit yourhousinggroup.co.uk.
