Starting work on a new housing development in Crewe

21 October 2022

We’ve started construction on 73 new homes at Goddard Street in Crewe, Cheshire. 

The two-acre development is on the site of the former LMR football club and pitch and the scheme will provide 31 two- and three-bedroom houses for shared ownership, and 42 one- and two-bedroom flats for affordable rent for over 55s.  

We recently held an event to mark the start of construction work on the mixed tenure development, and senior members of Guinness and contactors Vistry Partnership were joined by Homes England, The Mayor of Crewe and other partners, to mark this important milestone.   

Providing much needed housing 

Jon Milburn, Group Development Director at The Guinness Partnership, said: “We have been working for many years on our plans to build new affordable homes at Goddard Street, so we are very excited to have started work with Vistry Partnerships on this site.  

“This development will provide much needed housing in Crewe and contribute to Guinness’s delivery of affordable homes under our Homes England Strategic Partnership.”   

The development is set to complete by mid-2024.
