Crescent Road housing development launch with the Mayor
Magenta Living has launched its first mixed housing development in Crescent Road, Ellesmere Port.
Magenta Living has spent the past decade providing affordable social housing and building communities across Wirral, and now are venturing into new territory to meet the needs of Ellesmere Port residents.
The Mayor Councillor Brian Jones, Lynda Jones, Executive Member, Growth and Innovation, and local ward Councillors Tony Sherlock and Justin Madders all attended the event.
The two pupils who won the competition to design the site hoardings from Westminster Primary School were also there to help with the ceremonial bricklaying together with the Mayor alongside Magenta Living’s Chief Executive, Brian Simpson.
Working in partnership with contractors Galliford Try, Magenta Living is building 46 homes; nine one bed flats, 15 two bed flats and 22 two bed houses.
Brian Simpson, Magenta Living’s Chief Executive says: “Launching our flagship development at Crescent Road marks the start of a new era for Magenta Living. Being able to extend our affordable housing offering within an area needing investment is great. We’d like to thank the Homes & Communities Agency and Galliford Try for helping our vision become a reality.”
Galliford Try Partnerships development director, Darren Leary commented: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Magenta Living to deliver this flagship scheme and look forward to delivering high quality homes for them and their residents.”
The £4.4m scheme at Crescent Road is due to be completed next spring. Magenta Living’s second scheme within the locality at Sutton Way is also underway, and development opportunities at further sites across Cheshire is also planned.
