A Salford housing association has completed a £5.4 million development to build 53 new homes in the city.

ForHousing, part of ForViva Group, has delivered the new “affordable” rent homes on three sites in the Walkden and Little Hulton areas.

In Walkden, an apartment block of 36 one- and two-bedroom homes has been built at Rowan House while the Whittlebrook scheme provides 10 two- and three-bedroom family homes.

In Little Hulton seven one- and two-bedroom bungalows have been completed at Russell Court, offering additional support to allow people to live independently.

The sites replace outdated housing schemes that were demolished in 2017.

“We are delighted to be welcoming tenants into these newly completed homes. We hope their new home will offer somewhere they can feel safe and plan out a future with new possibilities,” said Nigel Sedman, ForViva’s group director of homes.

“We have many other developments across the North West in the pipeline as part of our wider commitment to create high quality homes and places that people aspire to live and fuel their potential.”

ForHousing has developed more than 900 new homes to date and is set to build a further 540 by 2020.

Two of the sites, Russell Court and Whittlebrook, were developed by property services business Liberty, also part of ForViva Group. The third site, Rowan House, was developed by construction firm Strategic Team Group (STG), now part of Galliford Try Partnerships.

The schemes, designed by John McCall Architects, received more than £1 million grant funding from Homes England towards the development of the new properties.
