Halton Housing Trust has started work to build 22 affordable family homes in Runcorn.
The £1.8 million development on the site of a disused church on Russell Road will bring much needed two and three bedroom homes to the area by autumn 2013.
In partnership with Liverpool based MCI Developments, a total of 22 homes will be built and funded by the Trust and the Homes and Communities Agency.
Paul Mullane, Director of Regeneration and Investment at the Trust, said: “There’s a shortage of high quality, affordable homes to rent in Runcorn. As the main social landlord in Halton we want to improve people’s lives by improving the choice of homes in the Borough and these homes will help us achieve it.”
Whilst work starts in Runcorn, customers over the bridge in Widnes have moved into their new homes in Mill Lane. £2.1 million has been ploughed into the development of 20 two and three bedroom homes, funded by the Trust and the Homes and Communities Agency.
Halton Housing Trust is committed to providing quality homes and services and will have invested over £25 million in the building of new homes over a six year period up to March 2015 and continues to identify opportunities in both in Widnes and Runcorn to provide further homes.
