Claire Healey of Taylor & Wood said:

“Being the chosen agent to let and manage these brand new luxury apartments in Stalybridge is exciting and are looking forward to working closely with New Charter. It’s a great opportunity for our business to expand, we will be taking on a dedicated member of staff to assist us in providing a first class service to all new tenants of Summers Quay.

“We have found the amount of people looking for properties to let throughout Tameside has increased massively over the last few years due to first time buyers especially, finding it difficult to raise thousands for a deposit.

“When you compare the cost of living in Summers Quay to Manchester city centre the saving is up to 50%. Summers Quay tenants are getting brand new luxury apartments with excellent transport links into the centre so for many it will be a great alternative. We are sure this development will attract professionals from the city it is therefore our belief that Summers Quay will be great for Stalybridge town centre bringing more people into the town using the shops and small business and therefore boosting the local economy. “

John Ardern, Director of Homes at New Charter Group said:

“Given Taylor & Wood’s knowledge and understanding of Stalybridge and Tameside more generally, their experience and approach felt exactly the right fit for Summers Quay. We’re confident in the product we’re offering and are excited about the interest that has been expressed in the scheme. We’ve done very limited marketing to date but the response to what we have done has been fantastic.”
