BTP transforms Urmston site into 45 modern, affordable homes

A £5.6m development of 45 new affordable homes was unveiled recently in Davyhulme in Urmston.

The Spinning Gate is a state-of-the-art apartment block with landscaped communal gardens and parking, in a prime location overlooking Kingsway Park and just one mile from Trafford Centre.

It consists of 27 two-bedroom and 18 one-bedroom homes for shared ownership and rent to buy, offering an affordable opportunity for local people to make their dream of homeownership become a reality.

Trafford Housing Trust partnered with L&Q on the scheme which was built under the Trust’s Laurus Homes brand by contractor Seddon, with architects BTP leading on the design.

Vicky Saunders, Managing Director at BTP, said: “It is wonderful to see our designs brought to life in these modern, affordable apartments that will help people’s home ownership dreams come true.

“We are very proud of this development which has involved a significant amount of partnership working and collaboration. Before building even started we needed to carry out exploration work to check for unexploded World War II bombs. Thankfully none were found.”

Charlie Welsby, Contracts Manager for Seddon said: “It’s fantastic to see the results of our hard work with all of the partners involved come to fruition. Our team has used the highest quality materials so that the state-of-the-art apartments at the Spinning Gate will be enjoyed for many years to come.”

The Spinning Gate scheme received £1.2m from Homes England.
