Housebuilder opens consultation on plans for 500 St Helens homes

New homes

Taylor Wimpey has announced plans to create a new residential development of more than 500 homes on land south of Gartons Lane in Bold, St Helens.

The company is inviting the local community to find out more during its public consultation, between July 25 and August 15, and to provide feedback to help shape the final proposals.

Plans include homes in a range of styles and sizes, as well as public open spaces, landscaping and enhanced access to Sutton Manor Woodland.

Ian Harrison, land and planning director at Taylor Wimpey North West, said: “We are excited to hear the thoughts of local residents.

“We want to deliver a development that will complement the existing local community. With a wide range of houses and open space, we believe that the Gartons Lane neighbourhood will not only contribute to the delivery of much needed new homes, but will create an attractive, sustainable and long lasting addition to St Helens, with improved walking and cycling routes to Sutton Manor Woodland.

“We invite the local community to find out more about our plans by attending our public exhibition or visiting our website, where they can provide feedback and help us shape our final proposals before a planning application is submitted to St Helens Council.”

The site, which is located between Gartons Lane and Sutton Manor, has been allocated for residential development in St Helens Council’s newly-adopted Local Plan, which aims to see the borough deliver 3,725 homes by 2037 to meet the needs of its growing population.

Residents will be able to leave comments, or request further information, by visiting the consultation website and filling in feedback form at:, writing to Freepost SHAPE TOMORROW, emailing to, calling 0333 358 0502, or dropping into a public consultation on August 10, at St Michaels and all the Angels Church, between 3pm-8pm.
