Contractor signed up for Salford housing project

March 14, 2016

Construction firm Keepmoat has been selected to deliver a new homes project in the City of Salford.

The £56 million project will involve building 429 new homes in the Charlestown riverside area, which will take eight years to complete.

When finished, a fifth of the homes will be made available for rent or shared ownership via the Great Places Housing Group.

Keepmoat is already working with Salford Council on the £650 million regeneration of the Pendleton area, where it is currently building 1,250 homes and repairing 1,650 more.

Operations director for Keepmoat in the north west Gareth Roberts, commented: “The new Charlestown Riverside site will serve to tackle both the regional and national housing shortage, as well as the skills crisis in the construction industry.”

The new homes are just part of a drive by the council to get more new homes built in the city, which has included planning permission being granted earlier this month for three new projects that will provide more than 1,000 homes between them.
