Colette McKune, Group Deputy Chief Executive of ForViva said: “This is another proud day for ForViva as we complete our tenth housing development in Eccles in the past decade.

“Over the past ten years we have injected £127m into creating more than 400 much needed new homes and transformed thousands of properties that were in need of refurbishment.

“Building new homes is the best way we can tackle the ongoing housing crisis and create thriving communities. That’s why our work doesn’t stop here.

“We will continue to invest in Eccles and have more plans in the pipeline, including a £3.5m development of 44 homes specifically for people at risk of homelessness.”
