Countryside development gets green light

Proposals to create a new housing development in Rainhill have been given the go-ahead by St Helens Council, which will see Countryside deliver a collection of 89 homes on the former Oak Tyres site on Warrington Road.

The collection of two-, three- and four-bedroom detached and semi-detached luxury homes are expected to be released for sale in September this year. Construction is expected to complete be the beginning of 2016.

Planning advice was provided by Nathan Lichfield & Partners.

The development is to be named Stephenson Grove in homage to Stephenson's Rocket, the world's first steam locomotive selected in the 1829 Rainhill Trials.

Each of the new homes will be available through the government-backed Help to Buy scheme.

Peter Vella, regional sales and marketing director for Countryside, said: "Months of planning and design consultation have successfully brought us to a point where we are preparing to begin building work at the development, which will provide the St Helens property market with a fresh selection of exceptional new homes with an affordable price tag."
