Jigsaw signs on for 106 affordable Wyre homes
With an eye on a 2026 completion date, MCI Developments has partnered with housing association Jigsaw Homes Groups to construct 106 affordable homes in Poulton-le-Fylde.
The project comprises a mixture of two-, three, and four-bedroom homes, situated on nearly 10 acres of greenfield land south of Brockholes Crescent. All 106 homes will be available at either an affordable rent or under a rent-to-buy scheme. Most will be semi-detached homes, although there are terrace houses and detached residences proposed.
A play area designed by Miracle Design & Play is also included in the scheme, as well as more than two acres of open space.
MCI Developments, a Keepmoat Homes subsidiary, acquired the Poulton-le-Fylde site last year. Planning permission for the 106-home scheme was granted later that year, with the help of Smith & Love Planning Consultants. Homes England is helping financially support the scheme.
Having Jigsaw join the effort is the next step to bringing the project to fruition.
Craig Murphy, regional managing director at MCI, said: “We are dedicated to delivering long-term improvements for the communities we work in, and this development will be no different as we look to upgrade local road infrastructure and provide new open space and a play area for local residents.
“We’re also excited to be bringing this scheme forward with NHBC, showcasing the improvements we’ve made in the quality of our homes in recent years.”
Garnet Fazackerley, operations director of development at Jigsaw Homes Group, voiced her support for the project.
“We have a strong track record of delivering much-needed affordable homes across Lancashire,” she said.
“With more than 500 homes already underway in and around Poulton-le-Fylde and the wider Wyre borough, we are pleased to be able to provide even more for local people in the area,” she continued.
“Together with MCI Developments and Homes England we will help bring not just more quality homes to meet local housing needs but contribute towards creating a thriving community.”
