Strategic Team Group completes land inclusive

The final properties have been handed over at a scheme of 46 affordable family homes in Bradford by Strategic Team Group (STG) on behalf of social housing provider Home Group.

The £4.5m development of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes has been be built on vacant land off Bolton Road in Bradford and marks the first Land Inclusive Development delivered by STG, whereby housing providers can minimise risk and take advantage of the construction firm funding the project through planning, site purchase and early stages of the development.

The land was purchased from Bradford Metropolitan District Council and the project has been fully supported by Bradford Strategic Housing. Planning was granted in January 2013 and the development has been completed ahead of schedule. The scheme was designed by Brewster Bye Architects.

Commenting on the development, STG’s business development director for the Living Sector, Lee Robinson said: “We are delighted to have completed these much needed homes in such  a prominent location. Bolton Road is the first of our Land Inclusive Developments; we have a further four underway with another 18 due to commence before the end of 2014.

"We believe that this partnership approach to the development of social housing will help providers address the current shortfall in quality, affordable, family homes.”

Teresa Snaith, Home Group’s head of development, said: “As a not for profit housing provider we’re committed to providing the affordable rental homes need to tackle the housing shortage. By working with Bradford Council and STG, Home Group have been able to provide family homes for some of those people who need them most.

“The homes we’ve built are modern and energy efficient and they are all available for rent by those people who can’t afford to get onto the property ladder.

“This has been our first Land Inclusive Development with STG and the process throughout has been simple and efficient. We’re delighted that excellent project and site management has resulted in the final homes being handed over more than three weeks ahead of schedule.

“As one of the UK’s largest affordable housing providers we’re not only interested in providing homes but also building thriving neighbourhoods and we’re sure the people who come to live in Bolton Road will soon feel part of the community.”
