New homes improve Padiham eyesore

A new multi-million pound housing scheme has been completed in Padiham.

The recently completed Calder Green development is based at the former site of the neglected Riley’s snooker centre on land off Station Road.

Harbur Construction has built the new two, three and four-bedroom houses on behalf of Airevale Homes, which is making the mews, semi-detached and detached style properties available for private sale.

Richard Hutchinson, managing director at Harbur Construction, said: “The new development has not only helped to regenerate an eyesore site, but has also boosted the supply of high-quality family housing in an area where demand is high.”

The handover marks the completion of the third phase of a six-stage development which will bring a total of 120 new properties to Padiham.

The six-stage development has full planning permission for 82 homes and outline planning for a further 38 properties.

Merrissa Fallas, project manager at Airevale Homes, added: “Harbur Construction has delivered a scheme of high quality family homes which fully reflects our design vision.”

The properties, which have received support from the Homes and Communities Agency’s Get Britain Building fund, are designed to meet Secure by Design principles and the Government’s Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3.
