Developing homes

As a social housing provider, we play a key part in tackling the chronic housing shortage.

We know that homes of all types are urgently needed - including homes for social and affordable rent, shared ownership, outright sale, homes for older people and supported accommodation for people with a learning disability, autistic people, an acquired brain injury or those with a mental health condition.

In 2022-23, we built 205 homes in Lancashire, including 89 for affordable rent, 41 for shared ownership and 75 supported living properties with 221 affordable homes built during 2023-24 to achieve our 1,000-home target by March 2024.

Working in partnership with Onward Homes, we have secured strategic partnership grant funding from Homes England to provide affordable homes up to March 2026. Two developments are underway, which, when complete, will provide a further 128 homes.

Work has also begun on our flagship Extra Care scheme in Lancaster. Due for completion in May 2025, the high-specification development will provide 108 low-cost homes, including 92 apartments and facilities such as a roof terrace, games room, laundry, hairdresser and communal areas designed to be ‘sensitive to dementia’.

In Nottingham, our latest supported living scheme, Annear Place, is in memory of Andrea and Paul Annear, former Progress Housing Group tenants and the first couple with a learning disability to marry in the UK. The scheme provides accommodation and life-enhancing support for up to 12 people with learning disabilities.
