An exciting new £20 million housing development is set to deliver high quality new market sale and affordable homes on a derelict site in Bury.
Planning permission has been secured to build 109 new homes on the old Cussons Soap factory on Kersal Vale Road, which closed almost a decade ago. The site has become dilapidated and a blight on the neighbourhood. Of the 109 new homes, 65 homes will be delivered for market sale through Cube Homes, 26 will be sold through Shared Ownership with the remaining 18 being let at affordable rents by Great Places Housing Association.
The scheme has been carefully designed to create a high quality, sustainable setting for the new homes. The scheme has been designed to make the most of views over the River Irwell. Having acquired the site earlier in the year, the project will see extensive landscaping works on the site and neighbouring wooded area.
