Yesterday afternoon (10th April 2019) Arcon Housing Association staff welcomed Paul Dennett (Salford City Mayor) and Cllr Tracey Kelly (who has responsibility for housing), joined Arcon’s new Manging Director Ian Ankers and CEO Jon Lord of Bolton at Home Group to take a walk around the new properties being handed over to Arcon from Bellway Homes, and meet several new residents.
Arcon will take ownership of 21 new homes across a mix of tenures, shared ownership, affordable rent and social rent by the end of this year.
The Mayor has a significant interest in advocating for more social rented homes within Salford and all Arcon staff can proud that in Paul’s words “we are helping to make a difference” The event was also filmed as part of a 12 months BBC documentary, which is following the Mayor over the next 12 months and will be shown on the BBC.
A big thank you to all the people who made the occasion very memorable.
