Delivering on our commitment to build more new homes in Calderdale

We have started work on a development in Sowerby Bridge as part of our Calderdale Together Investment Partnership, committing to deliver 650 new homes over the next five years.

The scheme of seven apartments on Industrial Road has been designed for people with learning disabilities, enabling them to live independently with floating support where required. One of the apartments will be wheelchair accessible and the others will be adaptable.

The development is the latest to start on site as part of our partnership with Calderdale Council, which aims to invest £70 million in the area over the next five years.

Other developments underway in the area include:

  • 10 homes on Bradford Road in Bailiff Bridge, Brighouse, comprising seven two-bedroom houses and three three-bedroom houses. Work started in March and the development is due for completion in June 2019.
  • 10 homes on Belle Vue Road in Shelf comprising four two-bedroom houses and six three-bedroom houses. Work started in March and the development is due for completion spring 2019.
  • Rooley Heights, Sowerby Bridge – 28 homes for affordable rent in a mix of 12 two-bedroom houses, 14 three-bedroom houses and two two-bedroom bungalows.

Hilary Brady, Head of Development for Together Housing Group, said: “Housing delivery in Calderdale has not been at the levels we would aspire to and more recently we have been unable to meet the needs of an increasing population. 

“By finding sites to develop new affordable homes we can increase our housing supply in Calderdale to offer tenancy security and well maintained homes for our residents.”
