Double early handover success for Stanley Land and Homes

Barracks Road scheme

Cheadle Hulme-based Stanley Land and Homes has delivered two new affordable housing schemes in Wigan and Stoke, resulting in 44 new homes.

Alongside contractor Holmpatrick Developments, it has successfully delivered 29 homes in Bellerton Lane, Stoke-on-Trent, to registered provider Aspire Housing.

The scheme, which involved the regeneration of a former brownfield site, consists of two- and three-bedroom houses and cottage flats, made available by Aspire for shared ownership and affordable rent.

Stanley used it as a pilot scheme towards the implementation of the Future Homes standard, integrating carbon-reducing technologies, such as the use of air source heat pumps and increased U values and thermal efficiency.

The second scheme, Barracks Road in Bickershaw, was developed in partnership with Jigsaw Homes Group and consists of 15 homes available for affordable rent.

The development sits on a small infill site in the greenbelt which the local planning authority considered a sustainable location for new affordable housing scheme that could address local demand.

Neil Hughes, director at Stanley Land and Homes, said: “It’s been a hugely successful year end for Stanley as we continue delivering high quality affordable housing schemes for our partners across the region, with plenty more in the pipeline.

“Barracks Road, in particular, has received outstanding support from Wigan Council who would like to see more affordable housing like this being delivered in and around Bickershaw.

“Working in partnership with Aspire and Jigsaw, we’re proud that both schemes completed three months ahead of schedule to deliver upon Homes England funding deadlines.”

Stanley Land and Homes recently received planning permission to create another scheme off Coop Street in Wigan made up of 27 apartments, and another scheme of 168 new homes in St Helens.
