Work starts on new homes development in Cranage
New jobs and new homes are being created by Elan Homes in the Knutsford and Cranage area as it develops the site of a former garden centre.
The prestigious developer is boosting the local economy with its recent investment in Knutsford Road, Cranage, which will be transformed to make way for new homes.
Shaun McCarthy, technical director for Elan Homes in the North, said: “The redevelopment of this derelict site to provide new homes is great news for the area and has clear benefits for the local economy as we will be providing employment for construction workers. Based on figures from the Home Builders Federation, the development will provide 1.5 full time jobs for each new home built, plus up to four times as many in the supply chain.
“We recently started work to demolish the former Henry Alty garden centre, which in following its closure had fallen in to disrepair and become something of a blot on the landscape. As work progresses members of the community will be able to witness how we are changing the area for the better and giving home buyers more to choose from.”
Close to the Cheshire villages of Goostrey, Holmes Chapel and Knutsford, Cranage is a popular residential area for families and Elan is anticipating keen interest in the eight homes being built at the development, known as Woodside Court.
Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, added: “Comprising of just eight homes, Woodside Court is an intimate development and we’re confident that it will be a popular choice with homebuyers. I would encourage anyone who’s considering moving to a new home in the Cranage area to get in touch so that we can keep them informed of our progress as we work towards releasing the first properties onto the market.”
