A new build development in Werneth Oldham of 16 houses, 6 apartments and a young persons building for 6 people funded through the Oldham/Rochdale Housing Market Renewal Pathfinder.  The redevelopment followed on from the demolition of very small 19th century brick, terraced houses to react to a change in housing demand for larger family houses catering mainly for the growing Asian Muslim Community. Dwellings were offered on a mixed tenure with some outright sale, some shared ownership and some for social rent.

The scheme achieved an Excellent Eco Home rating.

Working closely with Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council planners, a high density terrace form was adapted ensuring a positive street scene to the two retained streets, Devon Street and Norfolk Street with Homezones formed to put people first, cars second. With perceptive and sympathetic design a high standard of family housing is achieved in this urban area of Oldham. Severe level differences from North to South and East to West were further challenges. A mixed pallet of materials, modulation of facades, some projecting first floors and irregular roofscapes all bring interest and refresh and enhance the local area.

Devon Street & Norfolk Street are excellent examples of what can be achieved through effective partnership.  The development shows the high quality of new homes that we are making available in Werneth which will ensure that it is an attractive place to live.”
