Home-shopping group Findel is to sell a residential site in Accrington after gaining planning consent from Hyndburn Council for demolition of a mill and development of 100 homes.
The six-acre site in Marlborough Road will now be marketed to residential developers. The outline consent is for 23 four-bed detached houses; 45 three-bed semi-detached houses; 13 two-bed semi-detached houses and 10 two-bed bungalows, with some ancillary business use.
Findel has three direct-shopping businesses involved in home-shopping, education and healthcare sectors. Hyde-based Findel is the largest private employer in Hyndburn.
Property consultants Dove Haigh Phillips and Trevor Dawson have been retained to market the site, which is accessed from Marlborough Road close to its junction with Moss Hall Road.
