The development is one of four across Chester built by Sanctuary Maintenance in Upton, Newton, Malpas and Lache.

In total, the schemes provide 41 new properties at a cost of more than £4 million, bringing a much-needed boost to affordable housing in the area.

MP Chris Matheson said: “The provision of affordable homes is vital for the families of Chester and Sanctuary’s developments at Noble Close and beyond are welcome additions.

“It was a pleasure to meet families in their new homes and spend time getting to know them.”

Paul Finch, Managing Director of Sanctuary Maintenance, commented: “Sanctuary is committed to delivering affordable homes in the communities in which it works.

“These developments are no exception and are testament to the hard work and dedication of the Sanctuary Maintenance workforce.”

All four of the developments in the city have been delivered in partnership and with funding from the Homes and Communities Agency, as well as providing valuable employment and training opportunities for local people.
