2million Housing Plan for Limehurst
Acacia Road, Limehurst, the site of the planned new development

Limehurst residents will be asked for their views on the design for a £2 million housing development in Acacia Road at a consultation by North West housing provider, The Regenda Group, at St Chad’s Centre in Limehurst Village on Tuesday 20th March from 3.30pm until 6.30pm.

The site of the former Greengate Pub has been neglected for years and has attracted fly-tipping and anti-social behaviour. The new scheme consists of 18 new homes, including a mix of 3 and 4 bedroom houses and four 2 bedroom bungalows.

Bill Lovat, Regional Director at Regenda said, “During the consultations to develop the ten year vision for Limehurst Village, 79% of residents told us that they wanted new homes to be built in their neighbourhood. In particular there is a demand for larger family homes and bungalows. We’re responding to this and have identified Acacia Road as a site for development to improve the area and provide much needed affordable homes.”

Martin Davies, Director of Development at Regenda added, “This is an opportunity for people to provide feedback on the proposed scheme which will provide well designed, spacious homes that achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3. This means that they will be highly energy and water efficient, produce fewer carbon emissions and will be better for both the environment and for the wallet. It’s a great scheme to regenerate an area of derelict land, and will provide homes that people can afford in a neighbourhood where they want to live.”

The project to develop a ten year vision for Limehurst Village is being led by Regenda, working with Oldham Council, other housing providers, community groups, voluntary organisations and local people. Once the vision has been developed it will be used to attract public and private money into Limehurst to make the plan a reality.
