Our latest development sees the completion of 14 affordable new homes, a community hall and a chapel in Fulwood.

Our new development at St Martins, Fulwood, Preston, is complete, bringing 14 high quality, affordable homes to the area.  

In addition to the new properties, St Martins has also seen the construction of a new chapel and community hall, delivered for Broughton Parish. 

Lauren Huggon, Development Project Manager at The Regenda Group, said: “This is a stunning development with a difference – not only have we brought much needed affordable homes to the area, but we’ve also worked closely with Broughton Parish to bring a new hall and chapel to the local community.” 

Construction of this £2.8 million development was carried out by M&Y Maintenance and Construction, with homes sold let and managed by Redwing. Both are part of The Regenda Group.  

Gill Kelly, Managing Director at M&Y Maintenance and Construction said: “I am so proud of each and every development we work on, but St Martins really has been special. Our construction team has been fully immersed in the local community, generating around £26,000 in social value activity and using local labour where we could. I am delighted to see the completion of this incredible addition to the local community.” 

With homes funded through the Homes England Affordable Homes Programme, the development consists of five three-bedroom houses and nine two-bedroom apartments available for rent to buy. Homes at St Martins were all reserved off plan. 

Louise Nicholson, Branch Manager at Redwing estate agents, said: “We’re delighted to launch our latest new development at St Martins. These new properties use energy efficient technology, reducing energy bills for residents and supporting net zero targets. With all homes reserved off plan, it really shows the demand for affordable housing options in the area. We’re sure that residents will be very happy in their new homes.” 

The new chapel and community hall provides a place for residents to come together.  

Canon Andrea Titterington, Project Manager for the parish, said: “The St. Martins chapel and parish centre fulfils twin objectives of the Church of England – to use its land to provide good quality, affordable housing and to offer community space for fellowship, service and worship. St. Martin’s is a daughter chapel for the parish in the centre of Fulwood and replaces the former 60-year-old building with an energy efficient facility fit for the 21st century.”
