The private housing arm of Leyland-based housing association Progress Housing has bought agricultural land off Church Road in Weeton from Northern Trust with a view to bringing forward 40 homes.
Before the sale, Chorley-based Northern Trust had secured outline planning permission for the site under the name of its residential arm, Lanley Homes, in collaboration with planning consultant De Pol.
It is anticipated that Concert Living will start work on the residential developement in autumn.
Laurie Lane, land and planning director for Concert Living, said: “Weeton is a fantastic location for family homes and we are excited to add this site to the others in our portfolio which will be coming forward for development over the course of the next year.”
In September 2019, Northern Trust sold a four-acre site in Pilling to Blackpool-based Create Homes having secured outline consent for 40 homes at the site.
