Cllr Nick Mannion, Cabinet Member of Housing, said
It was an honour to be invited to lay a brick at Peaks & Plains new housing development in Hurdsfield. They are a very welcome addition to the town.
It's great to see new high quality, affordable homes being built in areas such as Hurdsfield where there is such a high demand for housing.
We've answered some of your questions about the development
How many homes are being built by Peaks & Plains?
With the support from a Homes England Grant, we’re building six new affordable homes.
How many bedrooms will these new homes have?
Four x two beds and two x three beds.
I’m interested in renting one of these homes, how do you advertised these?
Through Cheshire Homechoice. We will advertise our homes at least six weeks before we handover.
We use Cheshire Homechoice to advertise our homes to rent and they manage the application process for us, but we own, manage and repair the homes.
How much is the rent per week?
The rent will be confirmed when we advertise these homes.
Are you building any more affordable homes in the area?
At the moment we do not have any in the pipeline for Hurdsfield.
The next available affordable homes nearby are Rough Heyes in Henbury and Bridgemont in Whaley Bridge.
How did you acquire the old community centre?
We purchased it from Cheshire East Council.
The original design changed. Was there a reason for this change?
We re-designed the scheme to make it more appealing and fit in better with the locality. The layout did not change.
