Lovell, the affordable housing company based in Altrincham, Cheshire, has managed to secure a number of contracts worth a combined total of £12.5m. With so many projects on the horizon, there should be an increase in labour, such as home renovations, in Cheshire.

The firm has been given the green light to go ahead on four new North West deals, which include a Parkway Green Housing Trust project worth £1.3m to develop 14 new Wythenshawe bungalows.

Further contracts include a bungalow and house development worth £2.8m for Linkway’s Halton housing trust in Runcorn.

The firm is also beginning its development of an affordable £2.44m housing scheme for Knowsley Housing trust in Huyton.

There is also a £1.98m development for a new-build housing programme underway on Liverpool’s Barlow Street, the result of which will be 18 properties available for social rent for Liverpool Mutual Homes.

Nigel Yates, Regional Director, is clearly delighted at being able to offer the affordable housing that such projects facilitate. He told B Daily:

“We’re delighted to be bringing our expertise in creating high-quality, energy-efficient affordable housing, and in customer-focused housing refurbishment, to these important new schemes.”

Lovell has also been selected to develop a £4m five-year programme for kitchen modernisation by West Lancashire Borough Council.

With all of these developments, a host of Lancashire and Cheshire builders should not be short of work for a while, and nor should builders or joiners in Chester who are able to commute to the area for work.
