The scheme of affordable homes is being developed in partnership with affordable housing provider Plus Dane and the Homes and Communities Agency. The new scheme will provide 13 homes in total, 5 of which will be sold via a shared equity scheme. All of the properties will remain affordable in perpetuity for local people.
The site is situated on a greenfield piece of land in the hamlet of Twemlow. Following an extensive planning process the homes were finally approved at a Public Inquiry held in Crewe. MCI successfully argued that the homes were suitable for the area and they would not interfere with the Jodrell Bank telescopes located a mile away.
MCI are the Principal Contractors, the project is expected to be completed by November 2013.
