We're proud of the strong community in Lower Falinge whilst recognising that there are improvements needed to the quality of the homes. Our flagship new build has already created 26 brand new and high quality homes for rent in the area. We are disappointed to read another negative media article which does not reflect our view or the view of local people.
We have had no discussion with government about Lower Falinge or any other neighbourhoods in Rochdale, and our understanding is that the funding announced is loan funding that will only work in areas, like London, with high land values.
We are committed to continuing our positive relationship with the community in Lower Falinge and our approach will continue to be to work with them on any plans to make any improvements in the neighbourhood.
