Conversion of Chellow Grange Quarry into Affordable Homes in Bradford, West Yorkshire

As Quality Site Inspectors (Clerks of Works), we inspect and champion quality on many public and private housing schemes across the UK, many of which support Local Authorities with their strategies to provide Affordable Housing for people across all regions of the United Kingdom.

One of our latest Affordable Housing schemes is in Bradford, West Yorkshire on the Chellow Grange Quarry which will become a mixture of 98 rented and shared ownership properties. Appointed by one of the largest Housing Associations in the country – Home Group, we are providing Quality Site Inspections throughout the development to ensure the build meets all the required standards and adherence to the client’s specification.

The Harworth Road development, proposed by Home Group Ltd and Vistry Partnerships Yorkshire, will assist Bradford Council with their plans to provide much needed good quality Affordable Housing for the Bradford District, across a mixture of 30 percent shared ownership and 70 percent affordable or social rent properties.

The site will hold 53 two-bedroom homes and 33 three-bedroom homes, with off street parking and electric charging ports, along with twelve one-bedroom apartments, all of which will be accessible through a new access road off Hathaway Avenue. The scheme will be built by Vistry Partnerships Yorkshire and has been designed by IDP Architects and Adept Engineers.

Before construction works commenced, over 35,618 cubic metres of materials were needed to fill the quarry, which was estimated to have taken around six months of work.

“It is great to see that this former Quarry will offer a solution for the demand of Affordable Housing in the Bradford District. We are working closely with Home Group and the construction teams involved to ensure that the build is maintained to the highest possible quality throughout all stages of construction.”
