Housebuilder Stonebond has been given planning approval to deliver a 106-home scheme that is 100% affordable with housing cooperative Great Places Housing Group.

How Stonebond and Great Places’ Enterprise House scheme will look

Half of the new homes will be for affordable rent and the remaining 50% will be for shared ownership.

The development will be constructed on the site of a demolished 1960s office building that used to be located in Wigan business park. The scheme, Enterprise House, will consist of a mixture of two, three and four-bedroom homes.

Enterprise House was designed by Stonebond’s in-house architect. 

The partnership scheme received grant funding from Homes England and Greater Manchester Combined Authority to redevelop the brownfield site.

Enterprise House is set to achieve a minimum of 10% biodiversity net gain, with new areas of open green space and a trim trail.

In June this year, Stonebond and Great Places announced a new open-ended partnership agreement that will initially deliver more than 600 affordable homes.

The homes will be delivered on brownfield sites across Greater Manchester and Cheshire.

Great Places owns 25,000 affordable homes across the North-west and South Yorkshire.

Stonebond is owned by the sons of Countryside founder Alan Cherry, Graham and Richard Cherry.
