Entwistle Green Land and New Homes has been appointed to market a £50 million regeneration project in Blackpool.

The firm of estate agents will now work alongside Hollinwood Homes, part of the Marcus Worthington Group, which is developing 400 new homes across two plots of land off Rigby Road to oversee sales.

The new homes are being built in partnership with Blackpool Council and will consist of two, three and four bedroom properties.

Social housing provider Great Places Housing Group will also build 70 new affordable homes which will be made available for rent.

The scheme, which was designed by Broadway Malyan, will also see a series of walkways that will link up both sites with the promenade, town centre and nearby parks.

There will also be a series of improvements made to Rigby Road as part of the area’s wider regeneration.

John Fisher, sales director at Entwistle Green, said: ” This is an exciting major development for Blackpool which will provide an alternative and fresh lifestyle to current and new residents of the seaside town.

“The mix of housing will clearly enhance the neighbourhood community appeal and the number of distinctive features in the development, including the emphasis on outdoor space, make it a desirable location.”

Entwistle Green is holding an open day at its Topping Street office tomorrow.
