Affordable homes unveiled in Burleydam following £1.7m investment

More Burleydam families can look forward to a future living in the village thanks to a development of new affordable rented homes which has been completed just a stone’s throw from Grade II listed Lodmore Hall.

BTP has sensitively designed the homes to complement their rural surroundings following a £1.7m investment from housing association, Jigsaw Homes.

The Lodmore Lane development in the small village of Burleydam, Cheshire East, comprises four one-bedroom apartments, four two-bedroom apartments, six two-bedroom houses and three three-bedroom houses which will all be available for affordable rent and prioritised for local people.

BTP was brought on board due to our team’s expertise in creating community housing with good design at its heart. The design of these new homes is inspired by rural barns to fit in with the local community and complement nearby Lodmore Hall.

There is a national shortage of homes in rural areas and the Lodmore Lane development contributes to a sector-wide commitment from housing associations to deliver more rural affordable homes to contribute to a living and working countryside.

Karen Wilford, development manager at Jigsaw Homes, said: "The future of Burleydam as a thriving village relies on young people and families being able to live and work in the area, so I am proud that we have been able to develop these much-needed affordable homes on Lodmore Lane.

The homes have been built on a rural site which has been specifically earmarked for affordable housing and it was important we worked with the right partners who understand how to enhance local communities through new developments. We are delighted with the homes BTP have designed and I can't wait to see the residents move into their beautiful new places very soon."

Manuel Atkinson, Director at BTP, said 'It is a real thrill to walk around these new homes and see how they will contribute to the future of the village. Our team took care throughout the project to ensure the design of these brick-built houses worked practically and sympathetically within the surroundings and we are pleased that the development will benefit local people.

Jigsaw Homes' Lodmore Lane development was made possible thanks to partnership working between the Parish Council, Cheshire East Council, Homes England and Tyson Construction.
