Hive Homes, our partnership with 9 other housing associations and the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), has exchanged contracts with Homes England on its second site – the former CarCraft site on Nixon Street in Rochdale.
The site had been vacant for 8 years before Homes England acquired it. Hive’s proposed new development would provide a mixture of three and four bedroom homes for private sale aimed at first time buyers, growing families and single home-owners.
The other housing associations involved in the joint venture are: Bolton at Home, Irwell Valley, Mosscare St Vincent’s, One Manchester, Onward, Salix Homes, Southway Housing, Trafford Housing Trust and Wythenshawe Community Housing Group. Profit generated from development activity will be returned to investing members to support their wider community activities across Greater Manchester.
Subject to planning, work is due to start on the new site in Spring 2021.
