THE second phase of an award-winning housing development in Macclesfield is getting underway.
Developed by Regenda Homes, the latest “affordable” homes to be delivered on Green Street will consist of eight three-bedroom homes, and six one-bedroom flats.
The £2.1 million scheme is designed by Halsall Lloyd Partnership and will be built by M&Y Maintenance and Construction.
Last year, the first phase was recognised by the Macclesfield Civic Society for its high-quality design and build.
Previously a depot site, the design drew inspiration from the traditional style terraced housing found in Macclesfield, including the incorporation of chimney light wells, and made use of materials found across the town, such as red brick.
“We are very excited to be starting on our second phase of development on Green Street,” said Martin Davies, Regenda Homes’ director of development. “The scheme will boost the affordable housing available in Macclesfield for rent but also help first timer buyers in the area get on the ladder via shared ownership.
“We had a very positive response to the design of our first properties on Green Street and we are hoping this scheme has a similar impact.”
Gill Kelly, director of M&Y Maintenance and Construction, said: “The team at M&Y Maintenance and Construction are delighted to be building this scheme on behalf of Regenda Homes.
“The construction arm of our business is undergoing rapid growth and we are currently on site with a number of builds across the North West. I am looking forward to seeing the development progress over the coming months.”
When complete the eight three-bedroom homes will be available to buy on a shared ownership basis.
