Ground broken for 53 Pendle homes

Barnfield Construction has started work on the site of a former mill building off Bailey Street in Earby.

The Spring Mill development is being undertaken by PEARL Together, a joint venture between Barnfield Investment Properties, Pendle Council, and Together Housing Group.

This project will see homes built on three-acres of redundant brownfield land, which was home to a call centre and car park until four years ago.

A portion of public open space has been earmarked for the site along with a housing mix which will comprise:

  • four one-bed semi-detached bungalows
  • 21 two-bed mid terrace and detached properties
  • 24 three-bed semi-detached properties
  • four four-bed semi-detached properties

As part of the joint venture, 13 affordable properties will be built for Together Housing Group to rent out, while shared ownership options will be available to buyers too.

With energy efficiency in mind, the homes will be built using timber frames, and some will have solar panels. Each property will have off-road parking space and an electric charging point.

Tim Webber, chairman and managing director of Barnfield Construction, and PEARL board member said: “We are creating modern homes blended with the existing fabric of the town, using materials sympathetic to the semi-rural countryside views.

“The homes offer something for everyone; with a mixture of one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom homes, buyers will likely include young families, retirees, downsizers and first-time buyers.”

Antony Ward, director of development for Together Housing Group, said: “With a mix of house types for outright sale and shared ownership, the site optimises the use of the land that has been vacant for some time, bringing attractive new homes available through different ownership options into Earby.”

Richard Savory, managing director at Raise Partnership, the project management consultants, added: “As regeneration programme managers helping to get this development started, it’s great to see work underway to provide much needed affordable housing on this site.”

Agents for the development are Petty Real. The project team includes BTP Architects, Adept, Ashley Helme Associates, E3P, and ACS Consulting.
