KEYLIFT FORKLIFT TRUCK TRAINING Professional Fork Lift Truck Training

New homes boost.

Keylift Forklift Truck Training likes new homes schemes!

Keylift forklift truck training is happy to hear that the Burnley Council are purchasing a number of empty houses in Burnley.  The houses will be done up and will be bought by a first time buyer. It follows the news that the council has received a second boost from the government.  It is through the second stage of the funding bid to the home and communities agency.  The fund has 50 million pound to help bring large areas of empty homes back into use. Burnley has been invited to take part in the formal bidding.  If they succeed the council will receive funding for a two year programme.  This will bring 25 or more empty houses back into use.

A new development with 280 luxury homes has moved a step nearer also.  What used to be William Blyth Chemical Works in Hapton is set to be sold off to create a leafy estate.  It’s a 38 acre estate owned by Yule Catto. It’s undergone a £2million programme in the past 6 months by the owners.  There will be open space and country parks for the use of the people in Hapton and for the wider community. The prime plot runs along the Leeds and Liverpool canal and has been placed on the market. It provides easy access to local towns and the Greater Manchester area.  There is a railway station that runs every hour to Preston. The schools will have to be looked at with a project this size, people are already having trouble getting their kids in the schools.  It’s one of the best in the country. The capacity for the housing project is 14.3 acres.  This is where up to 280 high quality houses can be built.  It will be within a lovely green setting by the historic canal. Hopefully this will create work and provide good homes for local people.
