Bellway to build 140 homes near Warrington

Bellway Homes has acquired 14 acres of land on Liverpool Road in Great Sankey on the outskirts of Warrington for a new residential development.

The housebuilder says it will transform the site, building a total of 140 high-quality properties, including three bedroom semi-detached homes and a range of three, four and five-bedroom detached houses.

The new development will be known as Primrose Meadow, with the name inspired by the town’s Warrington Wolves rugby team, who play in primrose and blue kits.

This new residential development is a welcomed return to Warrington for Bellway Homes, which last built in the area two years ago at The Heath, its popular and much sought-after scheme in Stockton Heath.

Jenny Bell, sales director at Bellway Homes, said: “We are thrilled to be back in Warrington, helping to meet the increased demand for new homes in the town. The plans for Primrose Meadow are stunning with an excellent selection of house styles, and we are confident that the development will prove popular with families, down-sizers and first time buyers looking for a high quality, low maintenance home in a great location.”

Bellway Homes will also make several significant financial contributions that will be of direct benefit to the local community.

A transport contribution of £157,696 will be made, as well as £28,371 towards the Primary Care Trust and a further £25,589 towards public open space and an equipped play area. A Mersey Forest contribution of £40,000 has been agreed and almost £2 million will be provided for affordable housing.

Bell concluded: “We are looking forward to getting started on site in the coming months, with the first homes ready for occupancy early 2018.”
