Work is finally due to start on a £6.7m residential scheme near Oldham that was shelved as a result of the recession.
Three60 Property Investors – a commercial subsidiary of Merseyside and Cheshire-based neighbourhood investor Plus Dane Group – is behind the revived plan to build 46 homes at Lumb Mill in the village of Delph near Saddleworth Moor.
Construction Partnership UK, Skelmersdale, will be building the new homes.
CPUK says that it now has £25m of work confirmed for the next 12 months and is seeing activity return to pre-recession levels.
Lumb Mill is a mix of 27 three and four bedroom properties and is expected to take two years to complete.
CPUK managing director Steve Burke said: "We were first appointed to build homes on this site five years ago; then the recession hit and the project became one of its victims."
