ENGIE – Titan Works – Halifax

Residents of a new affordable housing development on the site of a former iron works in Boothtown, Halifax, are settling into their new homes. Yorkshire Housing has partnered with EQUANS to create the 46-home Titan Works development on the land on Claremount Road, which has remained derelict for over ten years.

The new development has been created to boost the area’s affordable housing provision, with the two and three-bedroom homes available for affordable rent through Yorkshire Housing and shared ownership through Space Homes. Both options have proved exceptionally popular, with all the homes now reserved. Titan Works also offers a greener way of living through electric vehicle charging points at each property, making environmentally friendly travel a more viable option for the new residents.

Emily Wood, 26, who will be moving into one of the new homes, said: “My new home is just up the road from my parents’ house and is exactly what I was looking for, and more! I have a disability meaning it is nice to be close to family if I ever needed help!

 

“I’m most looking forward to moving in and making it my own space and of course hosting my friends and family and showing off my gorgeous new home!

 

“I also want people to know that although it’s hard you can buy on your own, you don’t need to wait to be able to buy with someone else.”

 

Sean Corcoran, Regional Director at EQUANS, said: “It’s been great to continue our partnership with Yorkshire Housing to transform this brownfield site into a community for local families to enjoy. The combination of affordable tenures will truly benefit the area and go some way to help tackle the region’s need for more homes.”

 

Andy Gamble, Executive Director of Growth and Assets at Yorkshire Housing, said: “We’re proud to have completed this scheme to create a 100% affordable housing development.

 

“We’re delighted to have worked with EQUANS and with the support of the local authority, Homes England and Space Homes. The development gives customers the chance to have a place they’re proud to call home.

 

“There is a need for more affordable homes across Yorkshire, including homes that give people the chance to step on to the property ladder. We’re committed to building a total of 8,000 new mixed tenure homes by 2030 and this scheme has significantly contributed to this.”

 

Cllr Scott Patient, Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Resilience, said: “We’re thrilled that this great partnership project is now complete and people can soon start moving in to their brilliant new homes. Helping people onto the property ladder and boosting housing options for local families through affordable housing is really important to the Council.

 

 

By breathing new life into a previously unused site, we’ve seen yet another excellent example of the regeneration that’s happening throughout the borough as part of the Vision2024 for Calderdale.”
