Partnership brings 133 new affordable homes to Burnley

BTP has worked in partnership with client Calico Homes and contractor Ring Stones Maintenance & Construction to deliver £18.3 million of new homes across Burnley.
 
A total of 133 affordable homes have been built across four sites and are part of Calico’s wider plans to build new homes across East Lancashire. 
 
Working closely with all stakeholders, BTP has designed a mixture of independent living homes for over 55’s, supported living for those requiring additional care and homes for young families.

Mark Beach, Managing Director at Calico Homes, said: “We’ve invested in these four developments of high-quality homes to help improve communities in Burnley. It’s been great to have architects BTP on board – they have designed homes that offer something for people of all ages and provide accessible homes for those who need them.”
 
Manuel Atkinson, Director at BTP Architects said: “At BTP we believe in design focused on sustainability and quality to ensure homes are future-proofed as well as a pleasure to live in. It’s great to see these four developments we’ve worked on with Calico Homes now being enjoyed by residents.”

At Station Road in Padiham a previously disused piece of land has been transformed into a £9.5 million development of 66 houses, bungalows and apartments for affordable rent providing greatly needed homes that have been warmly welcomed by local residents.

In Nelson, the £4.3 million Priory Chase scheme has brought 33 new homes for affordable rent to the area in partnership with Pendle Borough Council and Homes England.

Elsewhere a £3 million scheme of 24 bungalows at Florence Avenue offers residents a garden, driveway and beautiful views of Pendle Hill. The development offers a mixture of homes for over 55’s, supported living for those requiring additional care and homes ideal for young families.

The hope is to create a vibrant and multigenerational neighbourhood.

At Royal Court in Briercliffe a £1.5 million development of 10 bungalows tailored to the needs of older people with a driveway, level access and easy access to local amenities have also been handed over to residents.

Wendy Malone, Head of Development at Calico Homes, said: “These developments are part of our wider aim of addressing the pressing need in our communities for affordable housing and to create vibrant neighbourhoods. It's people who make houses homes so it’s great to see residents enjoying an improved quality of life in these new properties.”
