2010

In 2010 we took on a stock transfer of 141 homes and began a £5.5million refurbishment programme to improve and modernise the 1960’s homes. This added to the 175 homes that we already owned on the estate. We also manage 556 properties there for Manchester Council.

Since completing the refurbishment we’ve built an additional 41 energy-efficient homes, all of which incorporate solar panels and rainwater harvesting.

As part of our ongoing commitment to the regeneration of West Gorton, we set aside £50,000 to benefit the community and to improve the lives of the residents. The fund has helped local schools and cafes by providing much-needed equipment, day trips, residential events and training sessions.

We also worked with the wider community in West Gorton, by offering up one of our units as a live training base for the students at a local college.
