All residents included in the latest phase of redevelopment in Lower Falinge have now successfully moved to new homes, Rochdale Boroughwide Housing (RBH) has confirmed.
All residents in the affected blocks have now moved to a home that meets their individual needs and requirements in the area of their choice. RBH has guaranteed that all residents who need to move as part of the redevelopment who wish to stay in the town centre will be able to do so, and more than half have chosen to do so.
RBH Director of Growth, Clare Tostevin, said: “We are really pleased that all residents from the blocks included in this phase of the redevelopment have now been supported to move. We are particularly pleased that all those residents who wanted to remain in the town centre area were able to do so, in line with our promise to the local community.
“RBH team members provided one-to-one support for each household right through the process and we have had some lovely feedback about how moves to new homes have helped to support a better quality of life.”
The next stage in Lower Falinge will see RBH building 55 brand new homes, comprising 33 one and two bedroom flats and 22 two and three bedroom houses, together with a new park and play space to provide a new “green heart” at the centre of Lower Falinge.
This new green area will provide improved public open space for both new and existing residents, and better connections and routes through the neighbourhood.
