Councillor David Borrow, Mayor of Preston, said: “It’s interesting to see a housing development in such early stages of construction and after being shown around the site I feel like I’ve learned a lot about the thorough planning that goes into the creation of homes.
“During the visit, the team explained the level of work and craftsmanship that goes into the houses and although there is a lot to do, it’s impressive at how quickly they can create them.
“I’m looking forward to seeing the homes when they are complete and to welcoming new residents to the area.”
The Mayor’s visit also marked the start of sales at Broughton Park and interested home buyers can now reserve a plot.
Janet Solan, Sales and Marketing Director at Stewart Milne Homes, said: “The team enjoyed showing the Mayor around Broughton Park this weekend. Now construction has begun it’s great to see plans
start to take shape.
“With sales now open, we are looking forward to getting to know the wider community and can’t wait to showcase the sites show homes once they’re open later this year.”
Prices for a new home at Broughton Park start from £309,950 for a four bedroom detached home and from £429,950 for a five bedroom detached home.
