We have transformed a plot of land off Cherry Avenue which was formerly vacant. In its place we have built 38 highly energy efficient, much needed properties and planning improvements to the surrounding area to benefit local people.
38 new homes - a mixture of two and three bedroom homes.
- 10 two bedroom houses
- 28 three bedroom houses
All homes are for affordable rent.
Start on site: spring 2021
Practical completion: spring 2023
Total scheme cost
Homes England grant total: £1.5m
Main contractor: Tyson Construction
Homes are fitted with increased ground floor insulation, increased loft insulation and triple glazing among other measures to help customers save energy and keep bills down. The eco friendly design makes them 15% more energy efficient than Part L of the Building Regulations require.
In spring 2021 we launched a competition to find a name for the new street at our Cherry Ave development.
We received 145 entries from people across the Oldham borough and 'Pear Tree View', suggested by local man Alan Tupman, was selected as the winner. Read more about the competition and new street name.
