Work has been completed on a social housing development in Chorley.

The Adactus Housing Group has completed the build of 25 new properties on Clover Road.

Six two bedroom houses, thirteen three bedroom houses and six two bedroom flats in a three storey block have been built.

The site is part of the Gillibrands development and was known as Gillibrands Parcel 10.

The houses are just the latest part of a major development of homes for rent and sale on land to the south of the town that has been undertaken by various house builders over the past few years.

Construction of the properties started in 2012 and they were handed over in October 2013.

Chorley Council selected families to live in the houses and nominated their suggestions to Adactus.

Paul Joyce, Chair of Chorley Community Housing (CCH) which manages Adactus’ homes in Chorley, said: “We are delighted to be helping Chorley Council to tackle housing need in the borough.

“There continues to be a demand for high quality family housing of the type built at Clover Road.”

Funding for the properties was provided by the Homes and Communities Agency with support from Chorley Borough Council.

The recently built scheme brings the number of 293 new homes provided by Adactus in the borough of Chorley since 2008.

CCH Director of Operations Richard Houghton said: “The Adactus Housing Group is in a strong financial position and is investing its surpluses in building more homes across the North West.

“Chorley is one of the Group’s key areas of growth and we have another 75 homes under construction in Chorley at the moment.”

Councillor Graham Dunn, who oversees housing for Chorley Council, said: “This is one of a number of pockets of land that we owned across the borough but were unused and so we have made them available, so that, in partnership with CCH, we can provide much needed homes for rent.
