New social housing scheme opens for residents
- 07 Apr
Seven families have begun to move into a new affordable housing development in Bamber Bridge.
The 34 newly built homes are a joint venture between Maple Grove Developments and Progress Housing Group. It's the first scheme to be delivered through the Lancashire Regeneration Property Partnership which is a joint venture between Lancashire County Council and the Eric Wright Group, reports 24dash.
The £3m development, designed and built by Eric Wright Construction, comprises 18 two and three-bedroom houses and 16 one and two-bedroom apartments on a former County Council owned site. The homes are being delivered over two phases with the second due to be completed in May 2015.
Andrew Murphy at Maple Grove Developments, said: "Brindle Road provides an attractive new residential area with quality properties that make a positive contribution to the local community. Social housing developments are on the rise with political parties now recognising the economic benefits of increased housing supply and ensuring the correct footings are in place to deliver this."
Eric Tamanis, Executive Director of Business Development and Property Services at Progress Housing Group, added: "It's really satisfying to see this first phase of the development finished and tenants being given the keys to their new homes. By working successfully The Eric Wright Group, the Homes and Communities Agency and South Ribble Borough Council we have been able to build a high standard of affordable housing in Bamber Bridge for local people at an affordable price."

Responding to the DWP Consultation: Housing Benefit Reform - Supported Housing "I thought this briefing was very good and very useful. The presentation was clear, well argued and I always find Michael gives me food for thought even if I don't agree with everything he says. I really like the way he facilitates a discussion in the room and I learn as much from other participants as I do from the presenter which is always good. Right length, right tone."
