ASCENT, the joint venture between Your Housing Group and Staffordshire Moorlands District Council, is adding more new homes to its build programme, this time on the site of the former Horsecroft Farm in Leek.
So far the Ascent programme has completed 32 family homes across the Staffordshire Moorlands, and will look to complete a further 270 homes by the end of March 2015.
The programme will also see a new community centre being built in the Haregate area of Leek.
The Horsecroft farm development will see 35 new homes built on the site and two existing properties refurbished, with six homes for affordable rent, 21 homes for shared equity and 10 for outright sale. Additional landscaping of the Ball Haye Green recreational ground is scheduled to take place once the development has completed in March 2015.
With prices for the shared equity properties start at £64,000 and the two bedroom homes for outright sale starting at £130,000.
Martin Stevenson, Regional Director for Your Housing Group explained: "The Horsecroft farm development is an exciting one, with the new homes being built near the centre of Leek."
Horsecroft farm will cost £4.5 million to build and includes a grant from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).
