Mark said: "These houses are the shape of things to come. Even in these difficult economic times its great that there are developments like this going on".

"People are being housed and I think, in the future, many more buildings will be designed like this".

“It’s the way people want to live in the 21st century. I think there’s definitely a case for upgrading a great deal of the public housing stock in Preston and this is a very good example of what we would want to see in the future."
