A brownfield site in the centre of Redruth, Cornwall, is now home to ten new flats for local people in housing need.
Pengover Parc, near Strawberry Lane, was previously used for mining activities and was also the home of a former bacon factory in years gone by.
It now boasts ten flats, across a two storey building, all for affordable rent. Local residents have proudly been taking the keys and moving in.
The scheme received funding from the Homes and Communities Agency, which was especially earmarked for regeneration in town centres.
Karen Goldup, Development Manager at Coastline Housing, said: “We’re really pleased to see this regeneration project completed in the centre of Redruth. It’s transformed an area that was previously going to waste and I have no doubt that people will take pride in the new building we’ve developed there.”
Mi-Space worked with Coastline to build the properties.
Rob Bradley, Executive Director, Midas Group, said: “As of one of the largest independent construction companies in the South West, Mi-space Living (part of the Midas Group) is delighted to hand over these ten new affordable homes, built for local people, to Coastline Housing.”
