Success for first phase of Blackpool regeneration project


Foxhall Village

The first phase of Lancashire housing developer Hollinwood Homes’ £50million Blackpool scheme, Foxhall Village, has sold out.

As part of the regeneration project, 400 new homes are being built on two plots of disused land off Rigby Road where a vibrant new community is being created. To date, 129 houses have been sold across the East and West sites and the development has become home to over 100 people.

The pioneering development is being delivered in partnership with Blackpool Council, the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and Great Places Housing Group, with a series of wider improvements also being carried out as part of the regeneration of the surrounding area.

Rik Faircloth, development manager at Hollinwood Homes said: “Foxhall Village has already begun to transform a previously neglected part of Blackpool. Since work began in 2014, we’ve welcomed families, couples, first time buyers and retired people who have all made a house a home here.

“Demand for the first phase was incredibly high, and we’re seeing that buyers don’t want to have to compromise style for affordability which is what makes the development so popular; it’s providing quality, energy efficient housing that people can afford.

“Work is well underway on the next phase which we are now taking reservations for and look forward to welcoming more people to Foxhall Village.”

In 2015, Foxhall Village collected the most innovative scheme award at the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) North West Planning Achievement Awards, and it has also been shortlisted for a RICS North West 2016 award in the regeneration category.
