Green light for regeneration of former industrial site

Stanley Land and Homes has secured planning permission to build 28 affordable homes that will regenerate a former industrial site in St Helens.

Work is expected to start in November on the collection of one-bedroom cottage apartments, which are being built in partnership with Jigsaw Homes Group.

The homes are being built on a vacant 0.33-hectare site off Baxters Lane that forms part of the wider Fishwicks Industrial Estate.

Chris Curtis, director of Stanley Land and Homes, said: “During our public consultation phase, local residents stated several reasons why they were in support of these homes, which included improving the appearance of the area and preventing it becoming a magnet for anti-social behaviour.

“We’re delighted that our latest partnership with Jigsaw Homes Group will deliver on these aspirations together with our main objective of providing new homes that people will find affordable and sustainable.”

He added: “This will be our seventh scheme for Jigsaw comprising a total of 296 high quality, affordable new homes and we’re proud to be continuing this partnership. Stanley will continue to bring forward a strong pipeline of new schemes over the coming months.”

The contractor for the project is Holmpatrick Developments and the professional team includes MPSL Planning and Design (Architect), Alan Johnston Partnership (Engineers) and Hive (Planning consultants).
