Great Places is set to invest £4.6million in a new 28-home development in Lytham St Annes after purchasing the site following the collapse of the previous developers in 2019.
The Heyhouses site, just off Bowden Lane, was included in a previous outline and reserved matters planning application in 2013 for 162 homes, a retail unit, care home and public house.
Morris Homes, has already built 132 new homes, and the previous developers built a supermarket, care home and public house, before leaving plans for a further phase of the permission undeveloped.
Great Places have since received detailed planning consent to build 16 homes for shared ownership, being sold by Plumlife Sales, and 12 being made available for affordable rent.
The site is being constructed in partnership with RP Tyson, a local Contractor who commit to local labour and supply chain.
This scheme means that the wider Heyhouses development now delivers a wide range of tenures and this is just one site in the region as Great Places continue to invest heavily in new homes along the Fylde coast.
Helen Spencer, Great Places’ Director of Development, said:
As an organisation Great Places continues to play its part in tackling the housing crisis and we’re delighted to be building in an area, which really needs new affordable housing options.
When the previous developer went into administration, we were very proactive in looking at how we were able to work to create an opportunity with the final phase to bring much-needed affordable homes to market.
With the local market out of the reach of some buyers and rents very high, this mixed-tenure site should prove very popular in what is a very desirable area.
We’re building lots of new homes along the Fylde coast and we are proud to bring these new homes to Lytham St Annes.
