A major development for Progress Housing Group sees the completion of 68 new affordable homes.

​The site located off Canberra Lane in Cottam, Preston, is the largest single development the Group has ever undertaken. With 12 apartments and 56 houses for affordable rent and shared ownership.

 This week Countryside Properties, the housing developer for the site, completed the final two properties for Progress Housing Group, which will be handed over to tenants early next week.

 The development which received grant funding from Homes England is made up of:

23 two-bedroom houses

33 three-bedroom houses

12 one-bedroom apartments

Daniel Griffiths, Director of Development for Progress Housing Group, said: "The completion of this development in Cottam is an important milestone for Progress Housing Group. It is currently the Group's largest single development to date and brings much-need, affordable and energy-efficient homes to the area."

The new homes are constructed using timber frames, a modern construction method that uses more natural materials, which will increase the properties insulation and help to reduce tenants' energy bills.
