...For The Former St Augustine's School Site, Oldham

Leading housing and regeneration specialist Galliford Try Partnerships, which markets its homes under the award winning Linden Homes banner, has today submitted a planning application for 54 high quality new homes on the former St Augustine’s School site in Oldham.

The vacant 1.8 hectare site is located at the junction of Grange Avenue and Chamber Road, around 1 mile south of Oldham town centre. The plans outlined to Oldham Council will see Linden Homes North West deliver a mixture of high-quality three bedroom detached/ semi-detached and four bedroom detached homes, which are perfect for families looking to locate to an established residential area.

Darren Leary, development director of Galliford Try Partnerships, said: “This scheme is a positive reflection of the continued growth Galliford Try Partnerships and Linden Homes are currently experiencing across the North West.

We have worked in partnership with Oldham Council to develop plans to deliver high quality, traditional family homes that complement the existing neighbourhood. The scheme will increase the range of houses available in this sought after area and will help deliver the Council’s aspirations for new housing in the Borough”.

A spokesperson from Oldham Council, said “As part of the application process Linden Homes have estimated 54 opportunities will be created in various capacities such as work experience, apprenticeships and employment opportunities – supporting the council’s Get Oldham Working campaign. The firm have also said they will support local schools, colleges and training providers.”

Galliford Try Partnerships is currently building 500 quality new homes under the Linden Homes brand for sale and rent in Brunswick, Manchester as part of a £100m PFI regeneration programme, which is completely transforming the area.
