A housing development in Preston will be granted a long overdue make-over after it was bought by a Co. Durham construction company.

The developer previously responsible for the overhaul of the All Saints Mews development had to stop abruptly due to financial difficulties.

The project has remained incomplete for the last four years. Any home renovation, in Cheshire, Lancashire or any other region, can remain unfinished without the necessary finance.

Work will now restart on the development, which comprises 18 properties, thanks to Hall Construction’s investment.

Speaking about the plans, Hall’s group business development manager, Craig Swales, told This is Scunthorpe:

“Unfortunately, the previous developer fell victim to the recession but we have now successfully negotiated the purchase of the site and will be turning it into an excellent development for the local community.

“We have completed many residential schemes in the area for our clients, along with our own in-house developments and will continue to source schemes such as this to increase our portfolio.

“As a socially responsible company, we are keen to use our skills and expertise to take over part-completed projects and turn them into an asset for the local area.”

The group is working towards providing a number of properties, all of a high quality, to local families, as well as making one available to buy so that a locally-based housing association can use it for social housing. The new homes are expected to be a hit with house-hunters in the area.
