Details in for 400 homes at former East Lancs Paper Mill

Bury’s largest brownfield site is lined up for a new neighbourhood with a relocated cricket ground and 16.5 acres of open space.

Morris Homes has submitted its reserved matters application for the 22-acre former East Lancashire Paper Mill plot in Radcliffe. Outline permission for the site was granted in 2018 through an application from Bury Council and Homes England. The two organisations chose Morris Homes to deliver the scheme in 2022.

The details included in this latest application include a breakdown of the housing proposed, a mixture of apartments, maisonettes, mews, semi-detached, and detached residences. Of the 400 proposed, 100 would be affordable.

The market houses range from having two bedrooms to four. The majority – 151 homes – are three-bedroom residences.
