Rapid growth sees Keepmoat Homes open new Manchester division

Following rapid growth and a number of contract wins, Keepmoat Homes has opened a new regional division covering Greater Manchester and parts of East and West Lancashire.

The homebuilder has operated in the North West for over 10 years, building over 3,000 homes since its inception in 2006. The move follows recent significant growth in the North West, with 615 homes delivered in the area since March 2017 alone.

The new Manchester division will cover the whole of Greater Manchester and parts of East and West Lancashire, whilst Keepmoat’s North West division will continue to cover Merseyside, Cheshire and the wider Lancashire County.

Headquartered at Beecham Court in Wigan the new Keepmoat Manchester division will create 20 new jobs, 5 of which will be at a trainee level.

Craig Murphy, Operations Director for Keepmoat Manchester, said:

“We have seen great success in the North West because we offer something different to other homebuilders. We build the majority of our developments on brownfield sites to transform areas and create new neighbourhoods, with our ongoing work at Charlestown in Salford and Willow Park in Middleton being just two examples of this.

“Our work in partnership with local authorities and housing associations has also supported our growth and we plan for our Manchester division to deliver 371 new homes in the next financial year.

“We now look forward to growing our team over the next few months to help support this vision.”

Current developments that will now fall under the Keepmoat Manchester division are: Cottonfields at Atherton, Willow Park in Middleton, Lyndon Park in Great Harwood, Riverbank View in Salford, Highgrove Place and Clarence Gardens in Burnley, Connell Gardens in Gorton, Manchester and Limehurst Village in Oldham.
