Seddon has been appointed to a £25 million construction framework with Wigan Council and Wigan and Leigh Housing.
The builder and developer secured a place on the Wigan and Leigh Housing Framework to carry out work for the Council and its Arms’ Length Management Organisation (ALMO) over the next five years.
Wigan and Leigh Housing, which manages 22,000 local authority owned homes, has plans to build 250 new homes for affordable rent, and is exploring further development opportunities.
Ian Ridgeway, Development Manager at Seddon, said: “We have a fantastic record for delivering high quality new homes for our clients, and we are naturally delighted that we’ve been selected for this framework.
“Wigan and Leigh Housing and Wigan Council have an ambitious development programme to bring more homes to the area, and we are looking forward to helping them deliver on their plans.”
Seddon has already delivered more than 70 new build homes for the organisation on Moore Street, Okell Grove and Thomas Street.
Cllr Chris Ready, cabinet member for communities and housing at Wigan Council, said: “This framework will help us to achieve our goal of providing a significant increase in the number of affordable homes which will benefit residents across the borough. I am particularly delighted that a local company will be working with us to deliver this project as, where possible we believe in supporting local businesses, therefore helping to boost the local economy through providing jobs and procurement.”
