AN Oldham MP joined the Mayor and Mayoress in officially launching a £5.9million housing scheme.
Didsbury-based developer Cube Great Places unveiled 44 two-, three- and four-bedroomed houses built at Leesbrook View in Lees aimed at a range of buyers.
Oldham East and Saddleworth MP Debbie Abrahams and Oldham Mayor and Mayoress Councillor Derek and Di Heffernan conducted the official launch.
Cube appointed Countryside Properties to construct the development, which is due to be completed at the end of July, and selected Plumlife to handle sales.
Buyers have the option to purchase houses through Help to Buy, the Government's equity loan scheme, shared ownership or outright sale.
Councillor Heffernan said: "Leesbrook View provides local working people with a range of contemporary homes which can be purchased outright, through shared ownership or Help to Buy, a fantastic Government scheme for first-time buyers."
Matthew Harrison, chief executive of Great Places Housing Group, said: "We built Leesbrook View, a leafy development on the outskirts of Oldham, to help alleviate the housing shortage in the area. The development caters for a variety of house hunters, from first-time buyers to homeowners."
Plumlife has a show home at Leesbrook View which is open on Saturdays from 11am-4pm and weekdays by appointment only. For more information, call 0161-447 5050 or visit www.plumlife.co.uk.
