Work Begins On New Penwortham Housing Scheme
19 Oct 2017

Leading housing and regeneration specialist, Galliford Try Partnerships, has started work on its South Ribble development, which will see the construction of 61 new homes.

Following planning approval in July this year, the contractor will now work to transform the derelict site off Hill Road South, Penwortham, with fifty percent of the new homes being made available for open market sale under Galliford Try Partnerships’ award-winning Linden Homes brand.

These open market properties will comprise a mix of three and four-bedroom semi and detached family homes, ideal for families or those looking to down-size.

The remainder of the homes, a combination of two-bedroom apartments and two-bedroom houses, will be sold to first time buyers through a tailor-made scheme to help those stepping onto the property ladder for the first time.

The development, to be known as The Maltings, is a 4.2-acre site previously owned by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA). The scheme’s approval follows Galliford Try Partnerships’ acquisition of the site from the HCA earlier this year.

First completions at The Maltings are scheduled for summer 2018.

Sian Pitt, head of sales at Galliford Try Partnerships, said: “We’re committed to helping young individuals and families get onto the property ladder and The Maltings is another example of our efforts in this area.

“This particular site is in a fantastic location, only half a mile from the green, open space of Pear Tree Park and just a 15-minute drive away from all the amenities of Preston city centre.

“It’s fantastic to see the team get on site to start progressing what I’m sure will be a hugely popular scheme.”
