Anwyl acquires nine-acre Warton site

Anwyl Homes has acquired a nine-acre site in Warton and plans to build 96 new homes as it expands its reach across the county.

The site off Lytham Road, between Preston and Lytham St Annes, is the company's first project in the area. The land has been purchased from Hallam Land Management and already has reserved matters approval for one and two-bedroom apartments and two, three and four-bedroom houses.

Anwyl’s development will include 30 affordable units of mixed tenure, with the remaining properties to be sold on the open market. As well as the affordable housing, Anwyl will fund community benefits worth around £380,000, including £182,732 towards local primary school education, a £125,000 bus service contribution, plus around £42,000 worth of highway improvements and public realm works.

Anwyl intends to start access and infrastructure works in March and to begin building homes a couple of months later. Show homes and a sales centre are set to open late summer.

John Grime, managing director of Anwyl Homes Lancashire, said: "This is the fifth site we’ve bought in the county of Lancashire, following up on recent acquisitions in Barton and Burscough. We also have projects underway in Merseyside and Cheshire.

"The Warton site is an integral part of our plans for the Lancashire region to deliver more than 400 homes per annum by 2023. This area of Fylde is perfect for our thoughtfully designed range of family homes and we expect it to be a very popular development."
