New homes for Burnley

First published in News

WORK on the first phase of a major housing regeneration scheme in Burnley is set to start in the next few weeks.

Housing bosses at Burnley Council have signed over a site in Oswald Street to Gleeson Homes for the development of 50 new houses.

It is the first of three housing schemes in the Daneshouse and Stoneyholme area that will be a major boost for the redevelopment of the area.

The first batch of homes are set to be completed and offered for sale by the end of the year. They are being sold for between £88,995 and £160,995.

Coun Peter McCann, executive member for housing and development for Burnley Council, said: “This is great news for the town, and shows our commitment to new housing in Burnley.

“The fact that our planned developments continue to happen is due to the dedication of the council in doing what we said we would do – improving housing across the town for the people of Burnley.

“We may have less funding following government decisions but one of our key priorities remains new, affordable homes for the people of Burnley, and a better offer for those moving into the area.”

The other sites in Abel Street and Barden Lane/New Hall Street are almost ready for handover, which will mean that the construction of more than 100 homes for private sale will follow in the coming months.”

Linda Matura, Gleeson sales manager, said: “We are absolutely delighted that we will be starting to sell new homes in early March with construction starting at the same time.

“The first completions of these family homes, designed for local people, will be in the middle of the year.

“The council has been a delight to work with and we are looking forward to providing new homes for local people in Burnley for many years to come.”

I've heard that RAyzer aka "ALF GARNETT" Is desperate to buy one of the new houses on Daneshouse. He'll get on with his neighbours like a house on fire.

I can see you and ALf "RAyzor" Garnett sharing a new pad up there. You'd be real pillars of the community.

oh yes, knock perfectly good down social housing homes with tax payers money, leave derelict for a couple of years to get green belt funding, get a third rate "out of local area" contractor to build poor quality, pokey little prefab sheds to pass off as houses at tax payers expence, try to sell them at 90 grand plus, and if they don't sell, burn them down at tax payers expence of course!! then claim on the insurance and forget about them. hmmm hasn't this been done before with 9 houses on Accrington Road.

Over the last 20 years or so there has been over £500 million pounds of various funding spent on the Daneshouse area of Burnley more than all the funding spent on the rest of the town put together in the same amount of time, and what has the area got to show for it? Absolutely Nothing, where is all this money going , because it is not going into the housing, shops, roads or other facillities in that area.

It's more than likely getting creamed off into the pockets of certain individuals.
