Property improvement work has been completed at Albyn Bank Road in Preston.

Contour Homes have recently released 2 remodelled 4 bedroomed Homes in the Avenham area of the city.

The properties were formerly maisonettes with shops on the ground floor.

The shops suffered from vandalism and have remained empty since 2011. A real blot on the landscape.

Contour Homes brought them back into use as homes.

Phase 1 of the project helped enhance the area and provided a supply of affordable larger family homes much needed to the Avenham area.

Phase 2 of the remodelling project will create two additional 4 bedroomed family homes to be let for social rent.

Contour Homes is one of the region’s largest registered social landlords with over 12,000 properties under its ownership and management across 23 local authorities.

The original Albyn Bank Road estate in Avenham was completed in 1968/9
