A £330,000 scheme to improve more than 40 former Chorley council houses has begun.

Work is being carried out on Liptrott Road and to the flats on Hallwood Road on the Chorley Moor estate.

It is part of a plan by Chorley Community Housing to improve the aesthetic appearance of the estate over the next few years. It will include a selection of walls and railings for front gardens to replace dilapidated fencing, new bin screens, rejuvenated canopies for front doors, feature cladding and render panels.

Liverpool-based Frank Rogers Building Contractor Ltd is doing the work.

Chris Richardson, community engagement manager at CCH, said: “Although we’ve carried out works on the interior of the properties over the past few years, the external appearance of parts of the Chorley Moor estate, which was built after the Second World War, is starting to show its age.”

Local residents have been involved in the planning of the scheme.

Ward councillors Tony Gee and Roy Lees visited the site to see the work.

Councillor Gee said: “We are delighted with the improvements that CCH are making to the Chorley Moor estate.

“Each of the previous phases have looked great and the residents are delighted with the work that is being done.”

Councillor Roy Lees added “The work CCH are doing on the Chorley Moor estate, in partnership with Chorley Council, is ensuring that this area goes from strength to strength. We can’t wait to see what Liptrott Road looks like when the work is complete.”
