Halton Housing’s Latham Avenue development, which is located off Latham Avenue, Runcorn was completed on 30th November 2017. The development comprises of 83 homes, a mixture of one and two bed apartments, and three bedroom homes all for affordable rent. The properties have been built on a former infant, nursery and junior school site. A further 12 three bedroom homes have also been built on this development by Seddon Homes for private sale.

The development has been extremely popular with Runcorn residents, and due to the scheme being handed over in phases, is almost fully occupied.

Nicky Harris, Development Manager at Halton Housing said:

‘We are delighted to take handover from Seddon Construction of the final property on our development of 83 new homes at Latham Avenue, Runcorn. This is one of our flag ship schemes providing a mixture of family homes and apartments for Halton residents for affordable rent. This scheme is on the site of the old Grange School and provides modern living in warm, spacious and well-designed homes. This scheme is part of a larger new build programme of housing by Halton Housing, which has proven to be our busiest and most successful year yet.’

Halton Housing have now completed the build of 204 new homes, all for affordable rent this year. This figure puts Halton Housing in the top four deliverers in the North West for this quarter alongside big organisations such as Riverside, Great Places and the JV North Consortium.
