Building work has started at a housing development which will deliver 33 new homes in Littleborough.
The site off Halifax Road was formerly occupied by Frankfort Mill, but had fallen into disrepair in recent years before being prepared for residential redevelopment.
Regional housebuilder Prospect Homes is currently building its Lockside development on the site, which will transform the brownfield land into a new community of homes.
Christine Kynaston, Sales and Marketing Director for Prospect Homes, said: “We are proud to be regenerating this derelict site into a much-needed new homes development and to deliver a scheme which will improve the overall landscape of the area.
“The first phase of sales releases have now been launched off-plan, and buyers can visit our nearby site in Rochdale to find out more about the homes at Lockside.
“We are now looking ahead to progressing the building work onsite, and seeing this once run-down area be transformed into a collection of new homes.”
The development in Littleborough will comprise a mix of three and four-bedroom homes, with prices currently starting from £206,995.
All 33 of the homes at Lockside will be available to purchase through the government’s Help to Buy equity loan scheme, where a property can be reserved with just a five per cent deposit and a 75 per cent mortgage.
The remaining 20 per cent of the home’s market value will be provided as an equity loan funded by the government, which will remain interest free for the first five years after purchase.
Prospect Homes is currently taking enquiries for Lockside at its nearby Valley View development, off Tarnside Close in Rochdale.
