Plans put forward for 127 homes on brownfield Lancashire site

Plans for the Clayton-le-Moors site

Salford developer and contractor, Watson Homes, wants to build 127 homes in Clayton-le-Moors, Lancashire.

It has submitted plans with a view to meeting demands for new housing in the area.

The six-acre brownfield site, on Whalley Road, and bordering the Leeds-Liverpool canal, currently comprises derelict buildings.

The development is proposed to provide 53 apartments and 74 houses, with 42 two-, three- and four-bedroom homes available for shared ownership, and 85 homes for rent.

The plans also include 32 one- and two-bedroom apartments for affordable rent aimed at the over-55s age group.

The houses will have off-road parking as well as landscaped front gardens and private rear gardens.

Watson Homes says the apartments will be split into two blocks, and offer provision for parking of 43 vehicles.

Block A will be a four-storey residence consisting of 32 flats and Block B, over three storeys will have 21 flats. Each apartment will come with a Juliet balcony.

Designed by TADW Architects, the buildings will be finished to a high specification to complement the surrounding area.

Watson Homes director, Rob Watson, said: “We are confident that this development will deliver a strong vision for the local community, offering high quality accommodation and regeneration to the current site.”

Watson Homes has completed more than 500 affordable homes and currently has 500 more under construction.

Clayton-le-Moors offers access to the M65, and strong public transport links.
