Sigma starts on Little Hulton housing

Construction has started on Sigma Capital’s latest build-to-rent scheme, where 73 houses will be delivered on the site of the former Our Lady’s Primary School in Little Hulton, Salford.

The scheme is Sigma’s 24th to date in the North West and will be delivered under the fund’s Simple Life brand. The four-acre site was brought to market jointly by the Salford Diocese Trust and Salford City Council, which owned adjoining land.

The properties, 62 of which are three-bedroom houses and the rest two- or four-bed, are being built by Countryside Properties and will all be available for private rent.

Matthew Townson, development director for Sigma Capital said: “We have been working closely with Salford City Council and the Diocesan Trust to get to this point and are very pleased to be underway at Our Lady’s.

“We know from our experience working with Salford that there is strong demand for high quality, well managed family housing in good, accessible, locations with local facilities and we anticipate keen interest.”

The scheme has a 70-week build programme with the first properties available in 2018.

Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said: “It is good to see a vacant brownfield site being redeveloped with high quality housing that will be well managed from the start.

“Sigma and Countryside have already delivered similar successful projects at Lower Broughton and Walkden and we are pleased to see work start in Little Hulton.”
