Bolton-based Challenger Building Services has won planning permission from Halton Council for a 35-apartment affordable housing scheme for over-65s.
The approval for Irwell Lane replaces an earlier consent granted in November 2020 for a three-storey development of 32 or 33 apartments.
Challenger’s refreshed plans were submitted in April.
Falconer Chester Hall is the scheme’s architect. The professional team also includes planner Satplan, transport planner Mode, DEP Landscape Architecture, Surety Fire Solutions and structural engineer Philip Wright Associates.
The revised scheme also provides 18 car parking spaces at the rear of the building, including three disabled and two electric vehicle spaces, together with a landscaped residents’ garden and external cycle storage unit.
Challenger managing director Richard Hutchinson said: “The local authority has recognised the scheme’s value in regenerating a prominent brownfield site. We will deliver more social value with this larger scheme.”
