Northern Housing Awards - 2019 Winner

The award-winning Kirby Road development was completed in January 2019 and was a row of five purpose-built traditional guesthouses that were no longer trading. With the former holiday use no longer a viable option the properties became vacant and were a cause for concern for the local housing enforcement team, this street was in need of substantial investment and regeneration.

These properties have been successfully converted into 13 individual units consisting of 1, 2, 3 and 4-bed energy efficient homes that provide up to 150m2 of accommodation and some with private gardens. This development has provided a unique opportunity to affect substantial positive change to the physical environment of a single street in the inner neighbourhood of Blackpool.
