Your Housing Group has started work on a £2m affordable housing scheme in Underwood Lane.
The development is being built on the site of a former redundant care home, and will see 13 two-bedroom and six three-bedroom homes being built with completion expected in spring 2015. All will be available for affordable rent.
The development is the result of partnership between Your Housing Group and Cheshire East Council, with the homes being built by Kier Living.
Stephen Haigh, executive director of growth and development at Your Housing Group said: "This is a fantastic opportunity to build much needed high quality, affordable family homes in Crewe. The new development helps to recognise Your Housing Groups vision of "transforming your lives and your communities", as well as enabling us to offer quality affordable homes for rent and shared ownership."
Andrew Gawthorpe, Kier Living regional manager, commented: "We are extremely pleased to have been selected by Your Housing Group to develop this scheme, and look forward to delivering high quality housing, which will meet the needs of local people."
Your Housing Group is one of the UK's largest social housing providers with over 32,000 homes across the North West, Yorkshire and the Midlands.
