Wythenshawe Community Housing Group (WCHG) has started work on a 57-week programme to bring 20 new homes to the former Manchester City Council-owned, Oakwood Lodge site on Longley Lane in Sharston.
This new site will bring 20 homes (10 social rent and 10 shared ownership), all with an energy efficiency rating of A. Each thoughtfully designed home will include off-road parking, air source heat pumps, photovoltaic panels, and electric vehicle charging points (EVP).
In consultation with our contractor John Southworth, the demolition phase is now underway with properties expected to be completed and ready to move into from winter 2024.
Andrea Lowman, WCHG Executive Director of Development, said: “We are delighted to be working with John Southworth on this exciting development, and look forward to bringing more much-needed affordable and energy efficient homes to Wythenshawe.”
Jacqueline Brown, Business Director at Southworth, said: “As a family-run company committed to delivering high quality new homes – we have over the last five years focused on advancing construction techniques and achievements with a clear focus to construct affordable, and energy efficient homes.
We are excited to be working with Wythenshawe Community Housing Group to deliver this project and bring more, much needed housing to the area”.
