North West builder and developer, Seddon, has started work on £2.3 million project to build 20 new affordable homes for Wigan Council.
The two and three-bedroom houses are being built on a brownfield site at Holt Street in Worsley Mesnes, Wigan, and will be available for affordable rent once completed.
Each property will be delivered to a high specification, embracing a design scheme that matches neighbouring properties. All properties benefit from private gardens and off road parking.
The houses will benefit from state-of-the-art energy efficiency features, including full external wall and loft insulation, to help tenants save money on energy bills.
Holt Street is the second project the family-owned contractor has worked on for Wigan Council, having recently completed nearby Riding Close – the £9.4m development which has created 81 new homes for affordable rent on the site of a disused council vehicle depot at Hindley Green.
Duncan Williams, regional director for the North West at Seddon, said: "It’s been great to development yet another flagship housing scheme for Wigan Council and be instrumental in delivering high quality, affordable homes to even more local residents.”
Councillor David Molyneux, Wigan Council’s cabinet member for regeneration, said: "At Wigan Council we are passionate about delivering new high quality and affordable homes for people in the borough.
"It is great to see work start on the new development at Worsley Mesnes and we look forward to seeing the homes completed ready for tenants to move in.”
