Anwyl acquires 20 acres for Burscough residential development
Anwyl Homes will develop in West Lancashire for the first time after acquiring 20 acres of land in Burscough.
The purchase included existing outline planning permission and Anwyl has since submitted a reserved matters application for 267 new homes.
It is part of the wider Yew Tree Farm development which will eventually compromise 580 homes, a care home, community centre and parkland along with plans for retail and industrial units including a soft play centre. The new neighbourhood also includes a potential school site.
The site will feature landscaped swales, ponds/wetlands, as well as an electric vehicle charging point for every home. There will be 94 affordable homes, equivalent to 35 per cent of the development.
John Grime, managing director of Anwyl Homes Lancashire, said: "Acquiring land at Yew Tree Farm is a major milestone for us. It’s a key strategic development site for West Lancashire and gives Anwyl the potential for more than five years of production in this one location.
Acquiring land at Yew Tree Farm is a major milestone for us.
"Known as Priory Gardens, our development will provide a boost to the local housing supply. It will also add to Anwyl’s continued growth in this, our 90th anniversary year."
Subject to planning approval, Anwyl hopes to start work on site this summer with the first homes due to be released for sale later in the year. It’s anticipated that the first properties will be ready to move into in early 2021 and that the Anwyl development will be complete by 2026.
