New homes work gets un­der­way

Accrington Observer - - NEWS -

WORK has of­fi­cially started on a ma­jor hous­ing de­vel­op­ment.

The former Church Bank Works site will be trans­formed into 48 two, three and four-bed homes tar­geted at lo­cal res­i­dents and first-time buy­ers.

De­vel­oper Glee­son Homes wel­comed Hyn­d­burn Mayor Mo­ham­mad Ayub and his wife to the St James Court scheme to of­fi­cially start con­struc­tion.

They were joined by Glee­son’s area man­ager John Mooney and sales man­ager Sue Irv­ing.

A spokesper­son said: “The new homes at St James Court are al­ready prov­ing ex­tremely pop­u­lar with lo­cal buy­ers thanks to their low prices and lo­ca­tion on the banks of the Leeds to Liver­pool Canal.

“Glee­son will be open­ing show homes on the de­vel­op­ment in the New Year with the first res­i­dents hop­ing to move into their new homes in the spring.”

Bosses said that in ad­di­tion to bring­ing ‘much needed new homes to the area’, the Glee­son Com­mu­nity Mat­ters Pro­gramme will pro­vide jobs for lo­cal peo­ple and see the house­builder work with schools, of­fer site-based ap­pren­tice­ships and spon­sor a ju­nior sports team.
