Mulbury Homes worked with social landlord Contour Homes to acquire former industrial land in the city’s docklands area for this major development.

Under the plans, a total of 56 houses and apartments will be made available, including homes for affordable rent or shared ownership.

The first phase will see 40 two and three-bedroom houses. Thirty-six of the properties will be let at affordable rent, with four homes for sale under shared ownership.

“The development will not only improve the availability of homes for affordable rent in the borough, it will also allow us to help new buyers onto the property ladder, with some of the properties offered for shared ownership.”

Janice Thompson, Contour Homes’ Lancashire regional manager, September 2013
