CERT Property Announces New Affordable Stretford Development

CERT Property and Heatley Developments have joined forces with Southway Housing Trust to assist Trafford Council in delivering their commitment to providing much-needed affordable housing in the borough. The one and two-bedroom high quality homes will be built as part of the Stretford masterplan on Edge Lane in Stretford through a partnership between CERT Property and Heatley Developments.

The homes are available for shared ownership at CERT & Heatley’s Royal Canal Works development located on the Bridgewater canal, in one of Manchester’s most in-demand areas, Stretford; recently named in the ‘six cool neighbourhoods to invest in’ by The Sunday Times.

The collaboration between CERT Property, Heatley Developments and Southway Housing Trust sees Heatley Developments contracted to build the scheme. Construction began on Tuesday 3rd May. CERT has also submitted a planning application for a further phase of development on the site of eleven houses to commence later in the year, which Heatley’s will also be building.

The scheme recently received funding from the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) via the Brownfield Housing Fund. The GMCA has been provided with funding from Central Government to support developments on brownfield sites that have a real positive benefit for the local community and economy. The affordable properties will be sold through Gecko Homes, Southway’s sales and marketing arm.
