New-look homes are impressive, says Hyndburn MP
11:33am Friday 20th September 2013 in News
REDEVELOPED homes in Huncoat have been hailed as ‘impressive’ by MP Graham Jones.
The Labour MP visited the 74 homes, in Grove, following the redevelopment by Hyndburn Homes and Contour Homes.
He said: “On the visit, I met a family who had recently moved from a private rented home, which they described as damp, cold and not fit for purpose.
“They had three children, one of whom had a disability, and their new home was warm, spacious and had transformed their lives.
“I met a retired couple whose new bungalow meant their fuel bills had been reduced, and they could see their grandchildren in comfort, and space.
“I have always supported the development of new, modern and affordable homes in the rented sector in Hyndburn, and the visit confirmed to me that lives can be transformed through this type of good-quality housing.”
Mr Jones said he would continue to lobby for resources needed to match the housing needs of the borough.
And he said he was ‘proud’ that more than 150 new homes had been brought into use since he was elected as an MP.
