WORK is about to start on a development of 41 homes on the site of the former Richmond Social Club, Warrington, which closed last year.
The development of affordable, rented homes in Latchford is being carried out by Weaver Vale Housing Trust in partnerships with the Land End Group.
It will be Weaver Vale’s first development in Warrington
The three-storey apartment complex is in a mainly residential area a short drive from Warrington town centre.
Gareth Rigby, director of property at Weaver Vale said the move represented the Trust’s commitment to improve housing opportunities for people of all ages throughout Cheshire.
He said: “Weaver Vale Housing Trust is dedicated to addressing housing shortages by providing safe, affordable homes for all throughout Cheshire. The Latchford site is our first development in Warrington, and we are delighted that work is set to begin shortly.
“These new homes will be offered at affordable rent and will transform the area formerly occupied by the social club. We look forward to making a positive impact on the community in Latchford and seeing these plans take shape”.
Richard Harrison, Lane End Group managing director, said: “This is really exciting news. We’re delighted to enter another partnership with Weaver Vale so soon following our recent announcement of our partnership in Winsford.
“We are committed to developing and enhancing communities wherever we build and are delighted to be bringing forward the redevelopment of the former Richmond Social Club”.
In the next few weeks, Lane End’s social enterprise, ‘New Beginnings’ and Weaver Vale will launch a job recruitment push to give opportunities to local people across the borough.
