First residents move into new homes on Sale West

First residents move into new homes on Sale West

We took handover of the first 17 homes last month from our contractor Seddon.

Residents of the two and three-bedroom family homes are now moving in, including several families already living on the estate who have transferred to a new property more suitable for their needs.

Rebecca Bates has moved from a one-bedroomed apartment on the estate to a two-bedroomed house with a garden which she says is ‘life-changing’ for her and her two young daughters.

“They are so excited to get their own bedroom, and they absolutely love being outdoors so the garden is great – we’re really looking forward to a summer spent playing outside,” she said.

“Knowing I can just open the doors and they can be safe outside in their own space means the world to me. The last two years have been tough with Covid and being at home a lot. This is the new start we’ve all been looking forward to.”

Other work on the estate includes improving car parking, road surfaces and kerbing, upgrading footpath and cycle routes and creating new outside spaces, while our home improvements programme in the area has seen more than 450 homes get new roofs. We have now begun the kitchen replacement programme on the estate, with residents on a rolling programme between now and 2026.

New signage has also been installed and the completion of the junior playground - funded by Our Sale West, Veolia, Trafford Council and the Irwell Valley Foundation - is also expected this month.
