Planning permission granted for 22 new homes in Scarisbrick

Plans for Black Moss Lane

Plans for a desirable family homes development in Scarisbrick have been given the green light.

Eccleston Homes, supported by planning and development consultancy, Lichfields, has secured planning permission for 22 houses on Black Moss Lane.

West Lancashire Council’s planning committee unanimously approved the plans to transform the brownfield site into a cul-de-sac of four- and five-bedroomed homes in this sought after area.

All the homes have been designed with spacious rear gardens and parking. The plans also include landscaping, tree planting, woodland management and a new footpath to link the site with Southport Road.

The site currently comprises vacant industrial stores, warehouses and offices, which were previously occupied by food wholesaler Bidfood. The commercial buildings, which are in a poor state of repair, will be demolished to make way for a range of stylish two- and two-and-a-half-storey homes and landscaping.

Rebecca Hilton, associate director at Lichfields, said: “By reusing previously developed brownfield land, Eccleston Homes has created a sustainable development that will deliver high quality homes to help meet local housing need in West Lancashire.”
