Seddon selected to build 114 homes for Great Places

Seddon Construction has been chosen by Great Places Housing Group to build 114 much-needed new affordable homes in Breightmet, Bolton.

The company, which has its head office in Farnworth, Bolton, has been selected to build a £6.6 million development of 60 houses and ten bungalows – all for affordable rent - at Waggon Road, Winchester Way and Mobberley Road. The development is set to be finished in autumn 2014.

In addition, Seddon is building a second scheme for Great Places – a £4 million development of 44 new houses also for affordable rent, at Milnthorpe Road, Breightmet. The Milnthorpe Road scheme is set to be completed in spring 2014.

Both schemes are designed by the Paddock Johnson Partnership architectural practice.

Seddon Construction managing director Jonathan Seddon says: "There is a pressing need for new affordable housing locally. Seddon has a strong record in delivering modern and energy-efficient new homes and our team is excited to be working with Great Places to build these high-quality properties for social rent.”

In addition to the new housing, the schemes will also create apprenticeship training opportunities through Seddon’s Build Learn Grow partnership with Great Places.
