Developer To Begin Work On Morecambe's 'West End Two' Project

Before the work begins...

Work is about to begin on a £5m scheme to transform long-term empty properties in Morecambe's West End into new, rental properties.

Following the West End One development by PlaceFirst, West End Two will be a collection of townhouses, duplexes and apartments created through the refurbishment and remodeling of 23 former guesthouses. 

In all, work will begin on 51 new homes this month, with new residents starting to move in from next summer.

David Smith-Milne, managing director of Placefirst, said: "West End One has demonstrated the need for high quality, professionally managed rental properties in Morecambe. The development is fully let and we continue to receive enquiries for the homes. West End Two will build on that success, offering the same high standards of accommodation within the historic envelope of grand Victorian properties.” 

"Our team works hard to ensure Placefirst residents have a great home, backed up by a direct landlord service. We design, build and maintain all our developments and provide a level of service to our residents that makes them feel secure, respected and valued."

Councilor Janice Hanson, Lancaster City Council’s Cabinet member for regeneration and planning, said: “The regeneration of Morecambe’s West End is a priority for the council and we were delighted to be able to secure a development partner of the quality of Placefirst to deliver this important scheme. 

“West End One has already made a huge difference in both changing the perception of the area and its attractiveness to families as a great place to live. We’re looking forward to continuing our partnership with Placefirst on West End Two and build on this success.”
