Thriving independent housebuilder Arley Homes has secured planning permission to build 40 family homes in Coppull, Chorley.
The developer, which acquired the 2.7-acre site in September, has started work on site immediately and will launch the show home by spring next year.
The development will be named The Meadows and feature a mixture of three- and four-bedroom detached homes and two-bedroom mews cottages.
John Cosgrave, managing director of Warrington-based Arley, said: "This brownfield site is in a great countryside location and presented the perfect opportunity for development. We felt it was the ideal spot for families and drew up plans to provide a fantastic choice of beautiful homes for both local people and newcomers to the area.
This is the second new site acquired by the Warrington-based developer this year. In March, Arley purchased a one-acre site at Gloucester Street in Atherton from Wigan Borough Council and launched the Chanters Green show home in September.
Arley Homes is currently marketing properties at Churchfields in Harwood, St George's Park in Mossley, Byron Grove in Bamford and Park View in Northern Moor in addition to Chanters Green in Atherton.
Arley Homes' buyers can benefit from a range of deals including part exchange, assisted sale, stamp duty and 5% deposit paid, subject to terms and conditions.
