Work on affordable housing doubles in Warrington in a year


We have our headquarters in Warrington and we’re proud to provide structural warranties for a broad range of clients both locally and nationwide.

This week we read in the Warrington Guardian that in contrast with national affordable housebuilding trends, work on affordable housing in Warrington has doubled in a year.

Homes England data shows building started or was completed on 449 affordable homes in the town in 2020-21 – 227 more than the previous year.

Highest number of affordable housing schemes for years

constructionThe number of schemes was also much higher than in 2017-18, when 212 affordable homes started being built or were delivered.

Of the schemes progressing in the area in the year to March, 152 affordable homes were completed, including 67 affordable rentals, 17 social rentals and 68 affordable ownership homes.

Across England, 28,191 affordable homes were started in 2020-21 – 21 per cent fewer than the previous year.


Providing families with affordable homes & supporting construction

Polly Neate, the Chief Executive of Shelter, said:

“By investing in a new generation of social housing, (the government) could provide families with genuinely affordable homes while also supporting the construction industry and boosting the economy.”

PricedOut, a campaign group for affordable house prices, says it wants to see the Government press ahead with the reforms proposed in last year’s planning white paper to boost supply.

Here at Advantage, we work with a number of affordable housing specialists, as well as with developers and individual home owners to provide latent defects cover.

As our clients are within the construction industry and our company directors have a background in property development, Advantage’s chosen charities to support tend to be those that help people without a home of their own in the North West.

We recently sponsored Liverpool homeless charity, Giving Warm, and have also supported The Whitechapel Centre.
