Go-ahead given for affordable rented homes in Kirkholt

We're delighted to receive planning permission for our new homes in Kirkholt - the latest phase of the regeneration of the Strand.

Strand CGI 1

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.

Working with the local community and with our partners at Rochdale Council and the NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, we’re proud to have seen the transformation of the Strand over the past few years, and these new homes will provide brand new and genuinely affordable homes on the remaining vacant land. We were delighted with the feedback we received at our community consultation, especially about the homes which can be adapted if needed where a family member has additional accessibility needs.

Clare Tostevin RBH Director of Growth

It’s great to see high quality brand new affordable homes coming forward on the Strand, which has improved massively in recent years. The fact that some of these homes, which were created in collaboration with the local community, will also support residents with extra needs is really welcome news.
