Miller outlines ambition for 337 homes in Rainford
The housebuilder has launched a consultation for its plans to build a £14.7m neighbourhood off Rookery Lane.
The 32-acre site is bounded by Higher Lane to the north, Rookery Lane to the west and Rainford Linear Park to the south.
Of the proposed 337 homes, 101 would be designated affordable under the Miller Homes proposals.
Miller Homes estimates the development will bring £30.5m in investment to the Rainford community, of which £14.7m would be construction costs.
Jonathan Steggles, land director at Miller Homes, said: “Miller Homes has a strong track record in the North West and this development gives us a great opportunity to continue building sustainable homes in quality places.
“We pride ourselves on high-quality design and materials, ensuring energy efficiency,” Steggles continued. “Together, our developments represent a multi-million-pound investment into the local economy, supporting over 156 jobs in the process.”
Miller aims to submit a detailed planning application to St Helens Council in July. If plans are approved, initial timetables have construction beginning in February 2023 with the first homes going on the market in September that same year.
Barton Willmore is the planning consultant for the project, while BECG is the communications consultant. Sten Architecture created the draft layout for the scheme.
Consultation on the project continues through 6 June. Learn more at millerhomesconsult.co.uk/rainford.
