Plans for 155 homes

Adactus Housing Group have announced plans to build 155 new homes in Chorley in partnership with Chorley Council.

The plans, which cover the next four years, represent an overall investment of almost £15m in new housing in the borough and includes £1.5m of grant from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and land from Chorley Council which is being gifted to Adactus.

Garnet Fazackerley, assistant director of development with Adactus Housing Group, said: “The homes will be built over the next four years on a range of sites across Chorley and will be at affordable rents.”

Deborah McLaughlin, executive director north west at the HCA, said: “This announcement is great news as it will see much needed affordable homes delivered in Chorley and will make a significant difference to the local communities in which we work.”

The homes will be managed by Chorley Community Housing (CCH) on behalf of Adactus.

CCH’s director of operations Richard Houghton said: “This announcement means that Adactus will soon have delivered on its promise to build more than 200 new affordable homes in the borough since 2007 in addition to the houses that would have been built anyway.”

Coun Alan Cullens, Chorley’s executive member for partnerships and planning, said: “This is a significant investment in the borough and good news both for people in housing need but also for the construction industry.”
