Harworth consults on 500-home Widnes project
A 56-acre site west of Hale Gate Road could be transformed into a residential-led scheme, under proposals put forward by the developer.
In addition to around 500 homes, Harworth Group’s proposals also feature a 20,000 sq ft local centre, a 100-bed care scheme and a primary school.
The developer predicts the scheme could generate £1m a year in council tax revenue for Halton Council.
Harworth has launched a consultation on its plans, drawn up by masterplanner Randell Thorp and planning consultant Avison Young.
The consultation will run until 30 May and a planning application is due to be submitted this summer.
The Hale Gate site is earmarked for residential redevelopment in the Halton Delivery and Allocations Plan, adopted earlier this year.
