Fylde MP Mark Menzies visits ‘built for life’ homes

Mark Menzies MP with Barratt Homes' Neil Goodwin

Fylde MP Mark Menzies visited a new ‘Built for Life’ development, designed to ensure homes can be easily adapted for family members at different stages of their lives.
Barratt Homes Manchester welcomed Mr Mark Menzies to its award-winning Cottam Meadow development in Preston, Lancashire.
Mr Menzies visited the 104-home development on Canberra Lane, and found out more about the Built for Life Outstanding award given to the developer for the site.
Mr Menzies said: “I was really impressed by the Built for Life concept. These are high-quality homes for young families which can be easily adapted for people as they get older, ensuring people can stay in their homes for longer.
“They look striking and these homes are an ideal opportunity for families looking for a new start in Preston. I’m grateful to Barratt Homes Manchester and the team for inviting us to have first-hand experience these homes for life.”
During his visit, Mr Menzies spent time meeting the team behind Cottam Meadow and discussing the new two, three, four and five-bedroom family homes with Barratt Manchester managing director, Neil Goodwin.
Mr Goodwin said: “We were delighted to welcome Mark Menzies onto the site and discuss our award-winning development. It was great to show him the plan for Cottam Meadow when it is completed and discuss our commitment to Preston.”
Built for Life is the new industry standard, endorsed by the Government for well-designed homes and neighbourhoods, based on a 12-point system which looks at accessibility for wheelchairs, space for lifts and the ability to convert bathrooms easily into wet rooms.
