Grant for affordable homes scheme
by Henry James

WORK is to start on the development of affordable homes at Burscough after a government grant of over £300,000 was secured.

The funding will help the Regenda Group housing association construct 12 family homes at Pickles Drive, on an area of land which has been identified as suitable for development.

Last year the borough council refused planning permission for the development but the decision was later overturned by the Planning Inspectorate. 

A grant of £312,108 from the government’s Homes and Communities Agency, which provides money for affordable housing, will allow Regenda to start work next spring.

Regenda will build eight three-bedroom and four two-bedroom properties on playing fields at the rear of Hesketh Road. 

Tracey Heyes, regenda’s executive director of operations, said: “High quality homes are in short supply in West Lancashire and this development will really benefit the local community in Burscough, not only by providing much-needed housing which people can afford but also by enhancing the area.”
