A developer has submitted plans for the final phase of a new housing development in Bolton that it claims will support around 160 new construction jobs.
Northstone, part of Peel L&P, has submitted a planning application to Bolton Council to build a further 131 homes at Roscoe’s Farm in Westhoughton.
The application follows approval of the first 19 homes earlier in July, which will start on site this autumn with completion due around April 2020.
The Bolton Road development in Westhoughton, named Roscoe’s, is the first scheme in Northstone’s portfolio following the launch of the housebuilder in October last year.
The company says that a mix of two-, three- and four-bed properties will be built at the site, with homes suitable for young couples, families and downsizers.
“Plans for our first housing development in Westhoughton are progressing well with consent already given for the first 19 homes at Roscoe’s Farm,” said Phil Wilson, Northstone’s chief executive.
“We’ve now submitted a planning application for the remaining 131 houses to complete the site which is a step in the right direction to meet local housing needs and boost employment in the area.
“Our homes have been thoughtfully designed to suit this location and we look forward to being able to establish Northstone with its first development in Westhoughton.”
Planning permission for 106 new homes at Roscoe’s Farm was initially granted to Jones Homes in 2016. Northstone subsequently purchased the site and has worked with Bolton Council and the community to redevelop the plans and house types to better suit the needs of the area.
