Adactus Housing Group is to build over 1,100 new homes across the North West of England, after receiving £22 million from the Homes and Communities Agency.

The total includes over 500 homes in Lancashire and over 500 in Greater Manchester and Cheshire. More than 100 homes are to be built in Sefton.

The HCA grant to Adactus from its affordable homes programme fund for 2015-18 was the 10th largest nationally.

The 1,100 new homes are in addition to 500 properties that Adactus already has under construction throughout Cheshire, Lancashire, Merseyside and Greater Manchester.

Chief Executive Paul Lees said: "I’m delighted that the HCA has given us one of the largest grant allocations of any housing association in the country.

"In doing so they have acknowledged our track record as a major developer of affordable housing over the years and demonstrated their confidence that we will continue to deliver.

"Working closely with our local authority partners across the North West we are committed to building quality homes in areas of acute need and this funding will assist us in meeting our target of completing the construction of almost 2,000 homes between now and March 2018."

Adactus manages more than 13,000 homes across the North West of England.
