Calico Homes has finished work on an a series of new housing developments worth £18.3m in Burnley through its partnership with Ring Stones Maintenance and Construction and architects BTP.
A total of 133 affordable homes have been built across four sites, representing part of Calico’s wider plans to build new homes across East Lancashire.
At Station Road in Padiham, a previously disused piece of land has been transformed into a £9.5m development of 66 houses, bungalows, and apartments for affordable rent.
In Nelson, the £4.3m Priory Chase scheme had brought 33 new homes for affordable rent to the area in partnership with Pendle Borough Council and Homes England.
Elsewhere, a £3m development comprising 24 bungalows has been completed at Florence Avenue. The development offers a mixture of independent living homes for the over-55s, supported living for those requiring additional care, and homes Calico says are ideal for young families.
Royal Court in Briercliffe has seen the completion of a £1.5m development comprising 10 bungalows tailored to the needs of older people.
Commenting on the new developments, Mark Beach, managing director at Calico Homes, said: “We’ve invested in these four developments of high-quality homes to help improve communities in Burnley.
“It’s been great to have architects BTP on board – they have designed homes that offer something for people of all ages and provide accessible homes for those who need them.”
Wendy Malone, director of Development at Calico Homes, said: “These developments are part of our wider aim of addressing the pressing need in our communities for affordable housing and to create vibrant neighbourhoods.
“It’s people who make houses homes, so it’s great to see tenants enjoying an improved quality of life in these new properties.”
