Client Opens First Scheme

Housing 21 has opened its first scheme where it has acted purely as a Development Agent. Trafford Housing Trust appointed Housing 21 to provide our expertise in the development of their first extra care housing scheme, Newhaven in Timperley, Greater Manchester.  

Housing 21's Paul Barnes (Construction Project Manager) project managed the construction process and the design team of the 38 unit development, with Lesley Johnson (Sales and Marketing Manager) providing sales and marketing advice for 18 shared ownership units.  Philip Hayton (Development Programme Officer) advised on the commissioning and setting up of services within the scheme. 

Rodger Cairns, Service Development Manager from Trafford Housing Trust commented: "For our first scheme we are really pleased with the end product, Housing 21’s insight into extra care housing has been invaluable to us."   

Siobhan Moore, Head of Programme Delivery for Housing 21 added: "Our appointment as Development Agent really demonstrates Housing 21 as market leaders in extra care housing, and an organisation that other providers can turn to for advice and expertise."

Trafford Housing Trust will be having a grand opening for Newhaven on the 25 March 2011.
