The Higher Broughton Partnership is delighted to announce that the first completed show home on the Kings Square development was officially opened on the 5th June 2013 by the Salford City Mayor, Ian Stewart.
After the ceremony, Mayor Stewart was given a tour of the 4 bedroom show home, which is the first of 80 high specification new homes currently being built by the Higher Broughton Partnership in the area formerly known as Top Streets.
The Partnership is a joint venture between Sigma Inpartnership Ltd and Salford City Council with funding from the Royal Bank of Scotland. Kings Square, which is being developed by Countryside Properties, will provide a range of three, four and six bedroom houses over a six acre development site.
Salford City Mayor, Ian Stewart, said: “This is a top deal for Salford, for local people, and for the Partnership.
“The Partnership has been responsive to the specific needs of the local community, consulted widely and tailored to houses to their needs.”
“It was an honour to open the show home, the new houses are bright and modern with plenty of space for children to play in, and I am looking forward to seeing the first residents move into these homes fit for kings by the end of the month.”
“There is huge demand for quality housing in Higher Broughton and, through the Partnership, we are delivering what local people want.”
“But this is just the first step in a journey for Higher Broughton that will see plenty of new homes and facilities for the area.”
Graeme Hogg, Director of Sigma Inpartnership, said: “The opening of the first show home at Kings Square is a major milestone for the Partnership. Kings Square will provide excellent, high-quality housing for the people of Salford and as the first home is now built, it won’t be long until the community begins to develop.”
“The development is part of the Partnership’s wider regeneration strategy to create a wide range of family homes and community facilities throughout Higher Broughton.”
Ian Simpson, Land Director for Countryside Properties, said: “Countryside Properties is delighted with the completion of the first show home, which marks a significant step in the development of much needed new homes to this area. We have seen a great deal of interest in the homes from the community in Higher Broughton already and we are very optimistic about the future of the scheme.”
The Kings Square development is due for completion in late 2014.
