Calico Homes Acquires Funding to Renovate Empty Homes
Calico Homes has acquired funding to bring back a new lease of life to 35 empty homes across Burnley.
Calico Homes Limited owns and manages approximately 4,600 homes in Lancashire and aims to make a difference to the quality of life of individuals and the wider communities in which it works. They provide accommodation for families and older people, plus student housing, supported housing and services for homeless people.
Calico have acquired the funding through the government’s Empty Homes programme, enabling them to purchase and refurbish 35 properties in Burnley. These properties will then be available to rent once renovated.
Gary Rooke, Development Assistant for Calico, said:
“We’re proud and excited to start work on a project that will not only go some way to resolving the problems of empty homes within the town, but will also improve the conditions of the properties and provide good quality homes for rent for people in Burnley.”
Building work will be completed by Ring Stones Maintenance and Construction, who will commence on the first six homes in August 2013.
