We have partnered with leading regeneration business Galliford Try Partnerships to build 116 new homes in Droylsden, Tameside.
The homes will be constructed on Edge Lane on the site of a derelict industrial area. Positioned beside the Ashton Canal, the new development has been named Waters Edge. The disused site will be transformed into a new community with 50 houses and 66 apartments planned.
The houses will be sold by Linden Homes, the housebuilding arm of Galliford Try Partnerships, and we will offer the two-bedroomed apartments for affordable rent.
Sasha Deepwell, Chief Executive of Irwell Valley Homes, said: “We’re pleased to be working with Galliford Try Partnership to bring more affordable housing to Tameside to meet the growing demand. The development in Droylsden comes on the back of us completing affordable new homes in Haughton Green last month - helping local people in Tameside into a home they can afford within their community.”
She went on to say: “We are on-site developing over 1250 affordable new homes over the next five years, helping to meet the growing housing need across our region. This includes new homes for affordable rent, as well as shared ownership. Plus, supported housing for those who need extra support to live independently within our communities, reducing pressures on health and social care services”
“We are also making significant investments in our existing homes and working with key partners including Homes England, local authorities and the Greater Manchester Housing Providers to reduce homelessness and deliver better housing options for customers.”
Brendan Blythe, Galliford Try Partnerships Managing Director, said: “As regeneration specialists we are delighted to have secured this brownfield land for the development of high-quality homes.
“The development and partnership with Irwell Valley Homes will bring a wide range of much-needed new housing options to the area.”
Construction is expected to start in summer 2019 with the first homes available at the end of the year.
