Building work gets underway on our new Bolton apartments
BUILDING work is under way on our new multi-million-pound development at a derelict site near Bolton town centre.
Manchester-based Harbur Construction is building the £2.9m development of 30 apartments in Back Church Street.
The new scheme will boost the supply of homes available for affordable rent in Bolton.
The three-storey development consists of three separate blocks comprising 24 one-bedroom and six two-bedroom apartments.
John Macfarlane, head of capital projects at Salvation Army Housing Association, said: “We are looking at a new type of approach at this flagship scheme, which will help residents save even more money, and we will be working with the council on this.”
Salvation Army Housing Association is a member of the Bolton Community Homes Partnership, which is a partnership of housing organisations working with Bolton Council to ensure the housing needs of the borough are met. The development was funded with help from the Homes and Communities Agency. It was designed by Bauman Lyons Architects and is expected to be completed in January, 2018.
