A further 68 houses are to be added to Bloor Homes’ development at Heath Lane, Lowton, bringing the total number of properties to 199.
Wigan Council originally approved the construction of 129 new homes at a 10.6-acre agricultural site in 2017, with a further two houses approved in 2018. Wigan Council has now granted full planning permission for an extension to the east.
Work started in 2017, with completion of the development as a whole set for 2020. The project includes a range of detached, semi-detached and terraced houses as well as apartments.
Bloor was advised by PBA, now part of Stantec.
Bernard Greep, director in PBA’s Manchester office, said: “We are pleased to have secured planning permission for a further phase of development at this scheme. The development will make a valuable contribution to the short-term need for market and affordable family housing, at a sustainable location.”
