Preston-based Places for People has been selected as preferred developer for a £15m development of more than 100 homes in Morecambe, Lancashire.
English Partnerships selected the developer to deliver "energy efficient and well-designed seaside homes" in Morecambe's West End, an area where there is currently a glut of Victorian former guest houses converted into bedsits.
The new development, called Chatsworth Gardens, will consist of a wide range of housing sizes and styles set around two central garden squares. The homes will be offered for market sale or shared ownership.
Paul Spooner, regional director of English Partnerships, said: "This scheme will help to reinvigorate the West End of Morecambe as an attractive and desirable place to live by the seaside. It will provide cutting edge new homes and help to rebalance the housing market in this area by reducing the numbers of bed-sits. This will help support the town's wider regeneration."
The Chatsworth Gardens scheme is an important element of the masterplan for the regeneration of Morecambe's West End, which was funded by English Partnerships.
