Building Affordable Homes in Gorton


In December I joined Great Places Housing Group at their largest ever development. The Melland Road site will offer over 130 homes for affordable rent, sale and shared ownership.

While our country faces a housing crisis and many of my constituents are on housing waiting lists, it was great to visit the Melland Road site and see Great Places’ plans for Gorton. This site will offer over 130 much-needed homes through a variety of affordable tenures and I am confident it will have a positive impact on the local community.

I was shown round by Great Places Head of Private Sector Development Ben Townsend and Seddon Construction’s Business Unit Director, Paul Hughes.

Ben said he was "incredibly proud of this development, which will not only provide over 130 quality homes for sale and private rent, but also the profits generated will be of great benefit in supporting Great Places’ wider work in communities.”
