New affordable homes are to be built on the site of a former Fylde Borough Council depot in St Annes.
The 32-home development in St David’s Road North has been granted planning permission and will be designed by Kirkham-based architects Croft Goode for New Fylde Housing.
The new houses, a mix of two, three and four-bedroom family homes, as well as one- and two-bedroom flats and two-bedroom bungalows, will be made available for affordable rent. All have been designed to meet the Government’s Code for Sustainable Homes and a number of industrial buildings on the brownfield site are being demolished to make way for them.
Tammy Bradley, operation director for New Fylde Housing, said: “We are committed to providing high quality affordable housing. The provision of high quality accommodation is key to ensuring sustainable communities.”
David Croft, a director of Croft Goode Architects, said: “There is high demand in St Annes for affordable homes, and this scheme brings a variety of accommodation to satisfy local housing need. The site has been in a state of disrepair now for a number of years, and this regeneration will benefit the whole community.”
