Road naming to round off Bolton Woods development

Incommunities’ is delighted with news that a road on one of its latest affordable homes developments in the city will be named after its long standing board member and former Council leader, Ian Greenwood.

Forty family-sized homes for rent are being built on the site of a cleared housing site at Bolton Woods.

A road onto the development will be named ‘Ian Greenwood Way’. Ian was an Incommunities’ Group Board member for a number of years. In 2018 he was elected Ward Councilllor for Bolton and Undercliffe before sadly passing away later in the year. He had previously served as a Councillor for Little Horton for over 17 years.

The road naming was approved by the Council’s Shipley Area Committee last week.

The Bolton Woods phase 2 development, off Livingston Road, will be a mix of two and three bedroom homes using timber framed construction, with some built as three storey houses.

Each home will have their own electric charging point and individual parking spaces. They also feature fully fitted kitchens and bathrooms. Bird and bat boxes will be fitted to the properties to ensure local wildlife flourishes in the area.

Twenty-four homes for rent were completed in at Bolton Woods in 2019 as part of phase one.

The £5.6 million development is being supported through Homes England’s Affordable Homes Programme and is due to be completed in the Summer.

Incommunities in-house development team are acting as the main contractor for the construction of the properties.

Geraldine Howley, Incommunities Group Chief Executive said: “I am delighted to see this development taking shape and welcome Bradford Council’s decision to name one of the roads onto the site in tribute to Ian.

“Ian was passionate about delivering good quality housing for everyone and served Incommunities, Bradford Council and the city’s communities with distinction. Our Bolton Woods development will be a fitting legacy to his service and I look forward to new tenants moving into their smart new homes over the coming months.

Angela Perry, Incommunities’ Assistant Chief Executive, Asset Management, said: “We are looking forward to the completion of our latest affordable homes which will add to the exciting regeneration of the Bolton Woods area.

“The development will transform the site which previously housed six hard-to-let blocks of flats and create modern energy efficient accommodation people will be proud to call home.”

Over the next two years, Incommunities has ambitious plans to complete over 250 affordable homes ready for local homehunters and over 1000 properties by 2025.
