Work starts on new homes in Kirkholt

We're excited that work has now started on our new homes at the Strand in Kirkholt.

Work starts on new homes at the Strand

The first spade is in the ground for our latest social housing development in Kirkholt, with our contractors Lovell Partnerships now on site at the Strand as work starts on 32 new family homes, all for genuinely affordable rent.

The 32 new homes include 10 two-bedroom houses, 18 houses with three bedrooms, and four four-bedroom houses. Two of the four-bedroom homes can 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. Over the past decade, the heart of Kirkholt has been transformed – we've worked together in partnership with Rochdale Council, the local NHS, community groups, and local residents to deliver new homes, improve existing homes, and create new and improved community facilities.

All the homes will be for genuinely affordable rent. They were designed by Triangle Architects, who also designed the adjacent Strand Hub and the new Kirkholt health centre. We have appointed Lovell Partnerships to build the new homes. Homes England have provided additional funding support.

We’re really pleased to get started on these new homes and we’re proud to be part of an ongoing partnership that is delivering new homes, new community facilities, and a brighter future for Kirkholt.

We’re thrilled to have the first spade in the ground at The Strand and to be working with RBH on another scheme, building on our long-standing partnership. This is a really exciting development as it will deliver a wide range of much needed affordable housing for the local area as well as helping to meet the regional and national housing targets.

Lee Sale Regional Managing Director, Lovell Partnerships North West

It’s great to see another fantastic regeneration project progress on Kirkholt, as part of the wider transformation of this area. Having accessible and good quality housing is vital to people’s health and wellbeing, so these homes will be a really welcome addition to the area.
