Morris buys 11-acre Lytham site
Telereal Trillium has sold an 11-acre site in Lytham St Annes in Lancashire to Morris Homes.
The plot on Shepherd Road is the final parcel of land to be sold by Telereal Trillium on the former Department for Work & Pensions site, following its previous sale of an adjoining 18.3-acre plot in 2013 to Marcus Worthington Group which was developed into a residential scheme, Booths supermarket, care home and pub.
Telereal Trillium has outline planning consent from Fylde Council for the demolition of the remaining buildings on the site, vacated by long-term tenants Hewlett Packard in August 2018, and the construction of 160 homes.
Morris Homes has now submitted a reserved matters application for 146 homes. The scheme will deliver a mix of properties from one-bedroom apartments, two and three-bedroom mews and townhouses as well as three and four-bedroom detached. In line with the outlined planning application, the scheme will also provide 15% affordable housing and additional public open sapce which will provide a link from Shepherd Road to Heyhouses Lane.
Tom Harling, senior development and disposals manager at Telereal Trillium, said: “We are pleased to reach an agreement with Morris Homes that will enable the remainder of this key development site to be regenerated for the benefit of the Lytham St Annes area.
“Working closely with Fylde Council over a number of years, Telereal Trillium has been able to secure a sustainable future for the entire site, establishing a new community that benefits from good access to local schools, shops and leisure facilities.”
Mark Cox, regional planning and design director at Morris, said: “We’re currently working with Fylde Borough Council to produce a residential development that will complement our previous phase and regenerate the brownfield site.
“We are in the process of demolishing the remaining buildings and will be looking to progress with construction of the new homes once planning approval is received. We’re very excited about this next phase in Lytham St Annes and our continued well-established relationship within the local community.”
Telereal Trillium was advised by GL Hearn.
