1:00pm Tuesday 3rd September 2013 in News
A HOUSING development plan has been given a £235,000 boost to build affordable homes in Woolston.
Square One Homes has been awarded the funding from the Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), as the first investment from its £13 million Growing Places Fund.
Louise Morrissey, chairman of the Growing Places Fund, said: “This type of project is what the Growing Places Fund is for, making it quicker for projects to get off the ground but also securing a return on that investment for the local area.”
The Kingfisher Square site on Manchester Road is to have 12 houses built in a project totalling £722,000.
Christine Gaskell, chairman of the LEP, said: “The Growing Places Fund provides essential enabling infrastructure and we are pleased to announce the allocation of funds to bring forward residential development opportunities and unlock stalled developments.”
Mick Dowse, director of Square One Homes, added: “This development offers a new exciting and uniquely innovative development of 12 purposely-designed homes to meet the needs of both first time buyers and key workers in Warrington.”
The objective of the Growing Places Fund is to generate economic activity in the short term by addressing immediate infrastructure and site constraints and promote the delivery of jobs and housing.
