Housing Trust pledges £30m investment to build 750 affordable homes

Tim Pinder

Peaks & Plains Housing Trust has unveiled its five-year plan which will see a total of £30million invested across both Cheshire East and High Peak.

The Trust has pledged to build 750 homes for affordable and private rent and sale by 2023 and deliver regeneration plans for areas like Macclesfield.

Tim Pinder, CEO of Peaks & Plains Housing Trust, said: "Over the next five years we will continue to be a great landlord and deliver first class services to new and existing customers.

"We want to create homes in neighbourhoods that are sustainable, vibrant, well connected and thoughtfully designed, including regions like Cheshire.

"Innovation will be key to ensuring we do this over the next five years. So, we want to move away from a one-size-fits-all approach and use technology to enable us to better understand customers' individual needs. We'll be working in partnership with experts across all we do to ensure we create great places to live and deliver first rate services."

Wouldn’t it be much better if all councils built council houses in stead of these housing associations getting government help and money but better them than nothing

I have just heard back from Peaks & Plains regarding whether any of the affordable homes will be built in the Alderley Edge, Wilmslow and Handforth area.

They said they can’t be too specific at this stage, but they will be building a good portion of these homes in Macclesfield, most notably the development of three burnt out mills on brownfield land in the centre of the town.

They will also concentrate efforts in the areas in which they already operate across Cheshire and the High Peak.
