In our previous blog on whether building regulations should be standardised, we looked at how the government wants to cut through planning red tape to try and stimulate growth in the housing sector.
A Mulbury Homes social housing development has been judged to be one of the best in the region.
Construction work has begun on a £1.5m development of 16 new affordable homes on a former flats site in Blackburn.
Specialist affordable homes developer, Mulbury Homes, is building the homes in North Road, Blackburn, on behalf of housing association Great Places Housing Group.
Mulbury Homes is helping housing associations across the region to acquire sites that already have planning consent for new affordable housing.
As a specialist affordable housing developer, Mulbury Homes has built up a large portfolio of sites across the North West that can help housing associations meet urgent demand for new social housing.
In just a few days time, the chancellor, George Osborne will deliver his autumn statement and it’s expected that he will signal more measures to boost growth and avoid a ‘triple dip’ recession.
The housing sector is an important partner in this recovery, and as the government seems to be keen to see more homes being built, it would be great to see Mr Osborne make housing a priority.
