Chellow Heights development

Work has begun on the construction of 66 new affordable homes in Heaton, Bradford.

As part of the Chellow Heights regeneration project, the development will contain two- and three-bedroom family homes with off-street parking.

The development sits just North West of Bradford city centre and will be accessible through a new access road off Hathaway Avenue. It will also benefit from several bus routes and a Metro train station close by.

Home Group, one of the UK’s largest providers of high quality housing and supported housing services, will own and manage the properties, with all offering affordable rent.

Will Gardner, Home Group’s Director of Development, said: “This is an opportunity to work with key partners to deliver new affordable housing within Yorkshire, to help address the shortage, and contribute to our ambitious plans to build 10,000 new homes by 2021.

“This is the second of three phases in the regeneration scheme, having completed 58 homes on the adjacent site earlier last year. Home Group has a long-term investment in the local community ensuring all our properties and associated communal areas are well managed throughout the lifetime of the development.”

All work is due to be complete in August 2018, with 28 of the homes expected to be available for occupation by March 2018.

The scheme has been designed by Brewster Bye Architects and is being developed and constructed by Strategic Team Group on behalf of Home Group.

Mark Henderson, a director at Brewster Bye, said: “Detailed and careful consideration was given to the layout of Chellow Heights so that the development not only respects the site and its surroundings, but also creates a high quality development ideal for families.

“With soft landscaping and tree planning to enhance and increase biodiversity, Chellow Heights will become an attractive and sustainable development of new homes which will complement and match the context and style of buildings locally in this area of Bradford.”

Strategic Team Group Managing Director, Andrew Watson, added: “We are delighted to lead yet another land-led scheme for Home Group as part of our long-standing working partnership, involving valuable contributions from our framework architect, Brewster Bye Architects.

“This development will deliver much-needed affordable homes and help to continue supporting the ongoing regeneration of the local area. The homes are all modern and energy-efficient and we are confident they will be well received by the local market.”
