We find incredible meaning and value in buildings. It’s not just property and it’s more than just a place to live – it can be an historic landmark, a piece of history, a part of our urban landscape. They lend a town its personality and a community its character. The Heaton Group exists to strengthen that meaning and protect that value.
We bring plenty of commercial savvy to every development project, renovation or new build. We’re predominantly in the business of regenerating older buildings and, in the process, reinvigorating some of our region’s communities. We’re custodians of heritage and character, preserving the best of local icons while providing the kind of urbane habitats that are made for lifestyle living.
It’s a service we’ve been providing for generations – there’s nothing short term about what we do. With that experience comes an approach that simply works: we make a connection with our communities, we build trust with our customers and we deliver quality you can rely on. The result – whether it’s a home to buy, a place to rent or an investment to make – is a sustainable development, a community asset and a stylish home.
John has over 20 years of experience in the Greater Manchester property market,taking the company from a small rental portfolio to where it is today. Overseeing the whole operation, he has formed strong relationships with the lenders, councils and suppliers that provide support and advice to the business.
We understand the importance of community and it's at the heart of everything we do. When we renovate a dilapidated building we enhance town centres, bring neighbours together and restore local pride. Working in partnership with local councils, we target buildings in areas earmarked for investment, stimulating the local market and bringing excitement to the area.
Our new build developments also focus on building a strong sense of community, with communal spaces for residents to congregate, meet and get to know each other.
Our head office is in Wigan, the home of the Heaton family for generations.
