Kellen Homes seals the deal on York Street site

The leading Northwest housebuilder has this week announced the significant next step in the scheme which will see two, three and four-bedroomed homes developed on the brownfield site in partnership with Simple Life Homes. T

Kellen Homes secured planning consent in December 2022 for the scheme which includes the creation of almost 12 acres of public open space and a mix of detached and semi-detached, privately rented homes. Kellen Homes will make a contribution for offsite affordable homes and highways improvements as part of the planning approval.

Kellen Homes Chief Executive Ian Kelley said: “This is an important step forward in this exciting new development which will provide 211 new homes to the local area on a disused brownfield site. We are creating a vibrant new neighbourhood to bring life to this underutilised area of the town and provide much-needed homes for local people.

“The scheme will also see us establish a large open space for residents of Bury to use, and we are delighted to be partnering with Simple Life Homes once again on this new development. This really is great news for the economy and people of Bury.”

Graeme Reay, Land Director for Simple Life, commented: “We’re really excited to be part of this new neighbourhood with our partners, Kellen Homes. Our new Simple Life properties are set to give a boost for the local community. We’re looking forward to offering renters of Bury a high quality, professional approach to renting, bettering their housing options locally and considerably contributing the housing market demands.”
