Anwyl acquires 20 acres for Burscough residential development

The latest residential phase of Burscough’s Yew Tree Farm development will be undertaken by Anwyl Homes Lancashire.

Anwyl’s Chorley-based business has acquired around 20 acres of land on Liverpool Road South from Crompton Property Developments.

The project will be Anwyl’s first venture into West Lancashire. The company’s Lancashire operation has just launched homes in Fulwood, Preston, and further schemes in Longridge and Barton are set to launch.

The land at Burscough has outline planning permission and Anwyl has submitted a reserved matters application for 267 new homes.

The wider Yew Tree Farm development will eventually be made up of 580 homes, a care home, community centre and parkland.

There are also plans for retail and industrial units including a soft play centre. The new neighbourhood also includes a potential school site.

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.”

Priory Gardens will feature a wide mix of one to four-bedroom properties, including apartments, bungalows, mews, semi-detached and detached houses.

There will be 94 affordable homes, equivalent to 35 per cent of the development. Anwyl will provide an electric vehicle charging point for every home at Priory Gardens

A number of landscaped swales, ponds/wetlands will be created as part of the development, which will also include a new park and landscaped public open space.

Anwyl will fund a number of local highway and drainage improvements off site, plus the homebuilder has produced travel plans to encourage residents to adopt sustainable methods of transport.
