Lovell gets £4.4m Salford housing schemeAffordable housing specialist Lovell has been chosen by City West Housing Trust for a design-and-build development of 50 affordable homes in Little Hulton, Salford.

Work is under way on the £4.4 million Kenyon Gateway scheme which will create 50 homes for affordable rent and low-cost home ownership across six sites.

The scheme is being supported with funding from the Homes and Communities Agency, paving the way for new jobs in the trades and boosting the local economy.

The energy-efficient new housing will meet Level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes. Properties will incorporate Lifetime Homes design features, ensuring they are flexible and can be adapted to residents’ changing needs.

Lovell, which has its regional office in Altrincham, was awarded the contract following a competitive tendering process through City West Housing Trust’s development framework.

Nigel Sedman, assistant director of Investment and Regeneration at City West, said: “We are looking forward to working with Lovell to build much needed new homes in Little Hulton.

“These new-build projects will provide the local economy with a major boost and regenerate communities, while continuing to support the sustainable growth of our neighbourhoods.

“We remain committed to providing homes in neighbourhoods that people are proud to live in and we look forward to welcoming our new residents once the schemes are complete.”
