HCD22 Gregge Street (The Spindles), Heywood Development Updates
Gregge St, Heywood – a high quality scheme of thirteen 3 and 4 bed family houses in a gated community with parking situated north of Manchester. Site purchase took place 5th July 2019. The development is now called “The Spindles”.
The site is on schedule to be delivered by Christmas 2020. As of October 2020 work is progressing steadily though slower than previously due to issues with worker and materials availability which are affecting all our sites.
Sales updates: Our agents have advised that marketing of this site will commence early November 2020. The sales brochure is ready as of the end of October 2020, and the site should be going live on Rightmove by the end of October 2020. Recent comparables have shown that prices are higher in the area than originally, so the site will be launched with higher asking prices than the original ones.
We have already received enquiries regarding this site thanks to the hoarding.
Coronavirus updates: Because of the situation with the Coronavirus Pandemic, we are closely monitoring government guidelines as this site is within the Greater Manchester area which has a high incidence of cases. We thank investors for their patience during this difficult time. As of end of late September 2020 work on site is continuing.

Fundraises target interest paid:
Fundraise 1: 10% (investors received 3% interest until the site purchase took place)
Fundraise 2: 10%
Investor capital repaid: too date no capital has been repaid as it is too early in the build process. The repayment of capital is dependent on sales completing.
Information re interest payments:
We will not be a position to pay any interest until all capital has been repaid, and all units are sold.
Note that for this development investors accrued interest will earn 1% p.a. if it is repaid more than 3-months after capital is repaid.
The 1% interest accrual will only commence at the 3-month date, so if your capital is repaid 21st October 2020 but your interest is not paid until 2nd April 2021, you will receive 1% interest on the standard interest accrued up until 21st October. This 1% interest would, in this example, apply to the period 21st January 2021 up until but not including 2nd April 2021. It would not apply to the period 21st October 2020 to 21st January 2021.
September 2019 update:
Detailed designwork for the site has now been carried out.
