New affordable homes to be built in Macclesfield

Peaks & Plains Housing Trust will build six new affordable homes for rent on the former Hurdsfield Community Centre site. The community centre, which has been a dangerous and derelict eyesore since 2007, will be replaced with two three-bedroom houses and four two-bedroom family houses.

Designed by Bowker Sadler Architecture, these striking new homes will go a long way to help lift this popular area of Macclesfield. With support from a Homes England Grant, these will be the first houses to be built as part of Peaks & Plains Housing Trust’s commitment to build 750 high quality homes over the next five years. 

As part of the five-year plan, the Trust has pledged to create safe, warm and comfortable places for people to live, as well as deliver ambitious regeneration plans for Macclesfield Town and other areas of Cheshire East.

The build will commence in Winter 2018.

Tim Pinder, CEO of Peaks & Plains Housing Trust, said: “We are delighted to build much needed affordable, quality family homes in Hurdsfield, Macclesfield. In this area, and across Cheshire and the High Peak, there is a very clear need for well-designed, affordable homes built with families in mind, and we’re keen to provide that choice for our customers and plug the housing gap.”
