Residents in Kirkholt have received some good news in the run-up to Christmas after our plans for new social housing at the Strand were granted planning permission by Rochdale Council
The 32 new homes include 10 two-bedroom houses, 18 houses with three bedrooms, and four houses with four bedrooms. All 32 homes will be for genuinely affordable rent and are designed by Triangle Architects, who also designed the Strand Hub and the new Kirkholt health centre. The homes will be built by Lovell Partnerships with the support of funding from Homes England.
Two of the four-bedroom homes are designed to accommodate a range of adaptations, creating much-needed homes that will be suitable for families with a disabled child or parent.
The homes represent the next phase of regeneration in the Strand area, and help to further our goal of creating new genuinely affordable homes of the right type and in the right place to benefit local people across Rochdale Borough.
