Leading housing and regeneration specialist, Galliford Try Partnerships, has formed one of the largest joint ventures in the North West between a housebuilder and a registered provider, as part of a major regeneration opportunity worth more than £100m, to transform an area of Greater Manchester.
The newly established joint venture partnership between Galliford Try Partnerships and Trafford Housing Trust Developments, Heath Lane Farm LLP, has been created to deliver circa 600 new homes at Heath Farm Lane, Partington.
The joint venture brings together two well established and highly regarded organisations to focus on delivering high quality new homes and provide a sustainable new community which integrates within the existing Partington area. The plans will be developed working closely with the local community and will make a vital contribution to the success of the Partington Priority Regeneration Area.
Work has now commenced on the consultation process following which a planning application, will be submitted to Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council. It is hoped to start on site later in 2018.
The new development, which is situated less than one mile from Partington town centre and 10 miles south-west of Manchester city centre, will see the joint venture create a new thriving community in the heart of Partington.
The proposals will comprise a complete range of 576 new homes, to meet the varied needs of homebuyers and residents in Partington and the wider borough. The properties will be a mix of one to five-bedroom dwellings, including apartments and family homes.
Five hundred of the new homes will be available for open market sale. They will be promoted under Galliford Try’s award-winning Linden Homes brand as well as Trafford Housing Trust’s home builder brand, Laurus Homes.
Further, 74 houses will be made available as affordable homes, and will feature a mix of tenures including Shared Ownership and rented.
Galliford Try Partnerships’ chief executive, Stephen Teagle, commented: “This is an exciting opportunity to work with the Trust’s Laurus Homes housebuilding division and deliver a high-quality development that provides great homes, a great environment and contributes to the wider regeneration of Partington. It will provide homes and jobs for local people and add to our growing programme of delivering new homes in the North West.
Brendan Blythe, regional managing director at Galliford Try Partnerships North West, said: “Trafford Housing Trust has a well-established reputation within the Trafford and Greater Manchester area, therefore we are delighted to enter into this joint venture to establish Heath Farm Lane LLP and bring forward this important regeneration scheme.”
“In recent years, the Partington area has under gone extensive investment and we look forward to using our expertise in delivering high quality, sustainable housing to rejuvenate the area and create a thriving, high quality community.”
Larry Gold, Deputy Chief Executive from Trafford Housing Trust, said: “Being based in Trafford, we are very familiar with both the challenges and huge opportunities that the Partington district has to offer. This scheme is just one of several transformational programmes in the pipeline for the area, and we look forward to working with Galliford Try Partnerships to drive this first phase of development.”
