Morris plots Runcorn homes on former Green Belt
The housebuilder has submitted an application to build 151 homes on land between the M56 and Chester Road after the 17-acre site was removed from Halton’s Green Belt.
The redesignation of the site, which borders the Bridgewater Canal to the south west, came after Halton approved its new local plan in April.
Morris Homes plans to build a mix of two-, three- and four-bedroom houses and apartments on the site, with 38 of the properties designated as affordable.
Mosaic Town Planning is advising Morris Homes on the scheme. E3P, Barnes Walker and Mode Transport planning are also on the project team.
Last month, Morris Homes was selected by Bury Council as the preferred developer for the East Lancs Paper Mill site in Radcliffe.
Morris Homes will deliver an £80m regeneration project at the 22-acre site, Bury’s largest brownfield redevelopment opportunity, over the next eight years.
