MP wel­comes new homes

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

MP for Peter­bor­ough Fiona Onasanya has wel­comed a new hous­ing de­vel­op­ment in Bret­ton, say­ing it will pro­vide homes that are “very much needed” in her con­stituency.

The Bret­ton Woods de­vel­op­ment is re­gen­er­at­ing the site of a former com­mu­nity school in Flax­land, cre­at­ing 68 new homes for af­ford­able rent, shared own­er­ship, mar­ket rent and out­right sale.

The £7.6 mil­lion project, which be­gan in July last year and is ex­pected to be com­pleted by Fe­bru­ary 2019, is the re­sult of a part­ner­ship be­tween Longhurst Group,Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil and con­trac­tors Lin­dum.

The Labour MP said: “I think Bret­ton Woods sounds like an ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic de­vel­op­ment.

“It’s bril­liant that we’re get­ting more homes in Peter­bor­ough.

“It’s cre­at­ing a bril­liant as­set for the com­mu­nity, providing af­ford­able homes for peo­ple and fam­i­lies who need it, through shared own­er­ship or af­ford­able rent. It makes com­plete sense and I wel­come it.

“I think it’s very much needed in this area,”
