Third shortlisting for St Martins Development

St Martins Development Shortlisting

We are excited to announce that our St Martins Development has been shortlisted for the third time! We’ve been recognised in the Best Partnership category at the  2024 Inside Housing Development Awards.  

St Martins is a collaborative development between The Regenda Group, M&Y Maintenance and Construction, Redwing, the Parish Church Council of Broughton, and Paddock Johnson Partnership.  

In September 2023, we completed a build of 14 new homes for the St Martins development, comprising five three-bedroom houses and nine two-bedroom apartments, and a new chapel and community hall for Broughton Parish on the site on the site of the former St. Martin’s Parish Centre.   

By collaborating with the Church, local community, and our subcontractors, we delivered over £588k in social impact initiatives

Staff from across The Regenda Group and M&Y Maintenance and Construction used volunteering days to help with planting and landscaping for the chapel building, donations to local food banks and spend within the local supply chain.  

Engaging with local schools enabled us to connect young people with the world of regeneration and sustainable construction as a career.  

Once the development was completed, a community planting day was organised so that members of the parish, residents of the new homes and the people from local community could contribute to the completion of the development and share in the celebrations for this new hub of the community. The chapel was officially opened by the Bishop of Blackburn in September 2023. 

The properties were let and managed by Redwing, with positive feedback received from residents. The partnership between Regenda, M&Y Maintenance and Construction and Broughton PCC is an excellent example of how different organisations can work together to deliver a shared vision, utilising surplus Church of England land for the provision of affordable housing. 

Gill Kelly, Managing Director at M&Y Maintenance and Construction said:
“I am so proud of each and every development we work on, but St Martins really has been special. Our construction team has been fully immersed in the local community, generating £26,000 in social value activity and using local labour where we could. I am delighted to see the completion of this incredible addition to the local community.” 

Canon Andrea, Titterington, Broughton PCC said:  
“M&Y undertook school workshops on construction which were valued by the parish school. Support was given to the Preston Food Bank, our move into the new building and the community planting day .This has been a model of partnership, and the proof is in the quality of the end product for the Broughton Parish and Fulwood’s community.”
