The new three-bedroom homes on Wellyhole Street in Lees
Oldham-based housing association, First Choice Homes Oldham (FCHO), has moved another step closer to delivering 750 new homes by 2026 by completing on 15 'off the shelf' new build, family homes in Oldham and Rochdale.
The social landlord has bought 10 three-bedroom homes on Wellyhole Street in Lees and five four-bedroom homes on Spotland Road in Rochdale directly from housebuilders.
Properties at both developments will be for affordable rent and they have been let in conjunction with the local authorities in each area.
FCHO remains on track to deliver over 100 new homes in this financial year and the social housing provider is looking for further opportunities to bring forward new properties in Oldham and the surrounding areas of Rochdale, Tameside, Kirklees and Calderdale to make a difference to local people.
Building on the success of these ‘off the shelf’ purchases, FCHO is now calling on housebuilders and developers with a commitment to delivering much needed affordable new homes to be part of its future development plans.
Joel Owen, FCHO’s Director of Development, said: "We're committed to increasing our stock of high-quality housing to help meet increasing demand for affordable homes and working with developers on these local schemes has been a very positive experience.
“We are continually looking at ways we can deliver new homes and partner with developers and housebuilders on off the shelf purchases like this, as well opportunities to acquire land, land-led package deals, Section 106 units and explore partnerships/joint ventures.
"If you would like to work with us to build homes and improve lives, do get in touch."
