Affordable homes for former Salford pub site
Published by Mulbury Homes for Mulbury Homes in Housing and also in Communities
Mulbury Homes is to build 14 new family homes on the site of a former public house in Salford.
Mulbury, a specialist affordable homes developer based in Cheshire, will build the £1.6 million scheme at the junction of Howard Street and Eccles New Road in Weaste on behalf of Great Places Housing Group
The new development follows the demolition of the Stowells Spire public house a number of years ago and will provide 14 three-bedroom houses.
They will meet level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes, comply with Housing Quality Indicators (HQIs), and also incorporate Secured by Design features, which focus on crime prevention.
The development is being financed by Great Places, assisted with grant funding from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA). Building work should begin in early spring and the project is expected to be complete in around 12 months.
Greg Mulligan, a director of Mulbury Homes, said: “Previous plans for apartments were not viable and our new development will bring this run-down site back into productive use in a way that will enhance the local environment, while providing much needed affordable housing.”
Stephen Porter, chief executive of Great Places Housing Group, said: “We have worked on schemes in Salford for the last 40 years and are privileged once again to be contributing to the creation of much-needed, high quality family homes in the city.”
