Forty-one brand-new affordable rent homes unveiled in Runcorn

A new development of more than 40 affordable rent homes has been unveiled in Runcorn with developers naming part of the site in memory of former local councillor John Swain.

Halton Housing worked in partnership with Warrington-based property consultancy PDW on the site, with one of the streets being named ‘Swain Close’ to honour the work of the former Halton Housing Board Member and Councillor, who served the local community for more than 20 years before sadly passing away in 2012.

Located in the Grangeway area of Runcorn, the 2-acre site includes a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments, and two and three-bedroom houses, as well as a bungalow and a large community green space.

The new homes were officially unveiled at a special ceremony attended by the Mayor and Mayoress of Halton, Cllr John Bradshaw and Marjorie Bradshaw.

Nicky Harris, Halton Housing’s Development Manager who has overseen the build of this development said: “We are delighted with the Swain Close build project. These modern affordable rent properties are a great addition to the area – close to nearby schools and local amenities.”

PDW carefully project managed the final stages of the development including on site management, handover and the ongoing post-handover procedure.

"The different accommodation types provided at Swain Close are a welcome addition to the area and were sure theyll be fantastic homes for many families for years to come."
David Bethell, Managing Director of PDW

David Bethell, Managing Director of PDW, said: “Having worked closely with Halton Housing to support them through the completion of this project, we’re delighted to see the new site finished.

“We’ve worked on a number of similar residential developments for Halton Housing in their drive to provide more affordable housing for local people. We’ve delivered in excess of 300 new homes across Widnes and Runcorn for Halton Housing on their Latham Avenue, Tanhouse Lane, Yew Tree Lane and Barkla Extra Care developments over the last 3 years.

“The different accommodation types provided at Swain Close are a welcome addition to the area and we’re sure they’ll be fantastic homes for many families for years to come.”

Each property on the development benefits from a fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, open plan living space, and dedicated off-road parking.

The homes are available on an affordable rent basis.
