New name and opening date of £4.5m Morecambe flats development announced

Building work continues on the new 'Bay Mill' apartments in Morecambe

Developers have revealed the name of and opening date for a new flats development in Morecambe.

The 42 new homes on Bold Street near The Battery will be called 'Bay Mill' and work will complete in June of this year.

Developers Place First said the £4.5m project will "deliver 42 high-quality, sustainable new homes for private rent this summer".

There will be a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments, available to rent.

The first residents are expected to start moving into their new homes ready for summer.

PlaceFirst said that the development has been called 'Bay Mill' because of the site’s history as the location of one of Lancashire’s famous mills.

Rental prices for the apartments at Bay Mill start from £699 per calendar month.

David Mawson, CEO of Placefirst, said: “Just as we raised the bar with our West End scheme in 2016, so too will we set a high standard for renting in Morecambe with the completion of Bay Mill.

“We are experts in designing and delivering quality homes for rent, that complement the needs of the areas in which we operate. Our objective is always to establish sustainable new communities that enhance people's wellbeing and instil a sense of pride in their local area. 

“We are working at pace to finalise Bay Mill and look forward to welcoming the first new residents this summer.”

Planning permission for the scheme was granted in 2020 and work began in 2022. It follows a development of 107 homes built by PlaceFirst in the area in 2016.
