Councillor Jacqueline Mort, of South Ribble, said: “The first step has been taken to build 50 safe and affordable high-quality homes and rejuvenate a derelict site in Lostock Hall.

After consultation with local residents, Westchurch Homes will deliver a mix of rent and buy properties which will improve quality of life, help local demand and reduce pressure to build on our greenfield sites.”

Oliver Chan, Business Development Manager at Westchuch Homes said: “Westchurch are delighted to get this scheme on site and start the construction of 50 affordable homes for Community Gateway.

This is our third site with Community Gateway and once completed will bring the total number of affordable homes we have collaboratively delivered to 176.”

This development is a key step for CGA, towards building and offering a wider choice of homes, locations and types of tenancies for customers.
