Anwyl proposes 249 Maghull residences
Plans form the first two phases of the housebuilder’s masterplan for the town, focusing on a 16-acre plot off School Lane as part of a wider 800-home scheme.
Anwyl Homes has lodged plans with Sefton Council to build 249 houses in Maghull, featuring 98 two-, 90 three-, and 61 four-bedroom properties.
A registered social landlord or provider is expected to be appointed early next year to deliver 74 affordable homes available under affordable rent and shared ownership tenures as part of the development.
The houses would sit on a wider 80-acre site, which benefits from outline permission for 855 homes, an over-55s development, more than 18 acres of public open space, and a multi-use games area.
Anwyl currently part-owns the land along with two private landowners.
John Grime, managing director of Anwyl, said that the company has been “working closely” with the land agent, acting on behalf of the other landowners and with the council, on the proposals.
“Going forward, we anticipate that the wider site will deliver up to 840 homes in a phased development, over a number of years, with 250-plus affordable homes earmarked”, Grime continued.
“Due to the volume of homes and significant infrastructure investment required to develop the wider site, including a much-needed link road to be constructed from School Lane to Poverty Lane, the overall Maghull East scheme is being delivered in manageable phases.”
If approved, work is anticipated to start on the first two phases of the development next summer, with the first properties expected to be released for sale in 2025.
Connollys is advising Anwyl on the proposals. Also on the project team are Ironside Farrar, Eddisons, and Urban Green.
