Ainscough Strategic Land has revealed the location of a trio of North West land promotion agreements which it says highlights confidence in the region’s housebuilding sector.

The Leigh-based company works with land owners to promote their land through the planning system and the three agreements will deliver more than 1,000 new homes if consented.

The three sites are:

  • 46 acres on the edge of the popular Cheshire village of Farndon
  • 90 acres at Delph Farm on the edge of Warrington
  • Eight acres in the Chester commuter village of Christleton

All three sites are now under contract, along with a further 10 being progressed through legals elsewhere in the UK, ASL’s land director David O’Reilly has revealed.

He said: “North West housebuilders remain keen to ensure a pipeline of consented sites and look to businesses like ours to deliver that for them, even in challenging times like these.

“There’s a lot of work to do in terms of consultation and master-planning on each of the sites, but we’re well on with the task and look forward to firming up our proposals in due course.”

The North West sites are part of a much wider portfolio that the strategic land business is currently working on, including sites in Wiltshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Leicestershire and Worcestershire.

Mr O’Reilly added: “Despite the headwinds out there, housebuilders remain confident. Given the housing sector’s contribution to jobs and wider economic growth, this is good to see.

“Our in-house skills, together with support from knowledgeable and experienced consultants, means we have a 95% success rate with sites we put forward for planning permission.

“We have an enviable track record and excellent relationships with our landowner partners which we work hard to maintain.

“I am confident we’ll be able to steer these North West sites through the planning system to help contribute towards the region’s housing needs, and they complement the wider UK portfolio of projects that Ainscough will deliver in the coming years.”
