Anwyl Partnerships was one of just 12 successful applicants out of 30 construction companies which applied to be on the latest JV North framework which aims to build £335 million of affordable homes over the next four years.
The four-storey apartments block has been designed by Paddock Johnson Architects for over 55s and the 10,000 square meter site and encompasses a mix of one-and-two bedroom flats for affordable rent and shared ownership.

The Harpers Road development is part of an ambitious programme to deliver much needed affordable housing, across the North West, for first time buyers, growing families and those in later life. Our specialist housing for over 55s is sensitively planned and designed, creating communities where older people can enjoy sociable, fulfilling and healthy lives. The facilities at Harpers Road, including the bistro, hairdressing salon and bowling green will be available for residents in the wider community to enjoy too.
