Homes England progresses 680-home Southport plans

The government agency has appointed Tetra Tech to draw up an outline planning application for a 54-acre residential development off Crowland Street. 

Homes England owns the majority of the site, which is earmarked for development into 678 homes under Sefton’s local plan.

The plot, located south of Crowland Street around two miles from Southport town centre, is the single largest housing allocation in the local plan, which was adopted in 2017.

The allocation also features the former Kew park and ride facility off Foul Lane, owned by Sefton Council. 

Homes England, which bought the site from Anwyl Homes last year, has awarded Tetra Tech a contract valued at close to £500,000 to carry out site surveys and pull together an outline planning application for the scheme. 

A planning application is expected to be submitted to Sefton Council later this year. 

Subject to planning approval, Homes England intends to market the opportunity to companies signed up to the agency’s large sites dynamic purchasing system.

Where exactly is the extra schools, GPS and infrastructure coming from???? There are hundreds of houses being build here but no extra infrastructure in place. The town is dying and looking dilapidated!!! Shame on this stupid council for allowing it all. Lots of money being made somewhere

Sefton Council should be totally ashamed of themselves destroying our GREEN SPACES. What is Green Belt land Sefton Council???


What standard of homes will these properties be? Southport needs to be developed as an upmarket seaside location to attract more consistent levels of retail spending to support local businesses which Sefton. council seems unwilling to do.

Absolutely should not be allowed. Already overpopulated and struggling with infrastructure. Traffic is ridiculous and no school places, gp’s or dentists. We need more green places not houses.
