A joint venture between housebuilder Dickie and Moore Homes and regeneration specialist NPL Group has won approval for a 128-home scheme in Thornton Cleveleys, to be delivered across three phases.
The project will see the redevelopment of a 10-acre site on Bourne Road, formerly occupied by Thornton Cleveleys Football Club, which is owned by Le-Fylde Estates.
The first phase comprises 41 two-, three- and four-bedroom homes and construction is due to start next March after Wyre Council granted full approval.
In addition, outline consent was granted for a further two phases, made up of 45 houses and 42 one- and two-bedroom apartments respectively, to be delivered at a later date.
The football club is relocating to a new ground at Poolfoot Farm, Fleetwood FC’s training ground, which is located nearby.
Glasgow-based Dickie Moore Homes and NPL Group joined forces to deliver homes across the north of England and the Wyre development will be the first to come forward under the joint venture.
Avison Young was the planning consultant for the project and LMA Architects designed the scheme.
John Dickie, managing director of Dickie and Moore Homes, said: “The mixture of detached, semi-detached and terrace homes will offer something for all sizes of families or individuals in this popular part of Thornton Cleveleys. The layout provides significant open space enhancing the amenity for all new homeowners.”
Nearby, Blackpool-based housebuilder Breck Homes is awaiting planning approval for a 210-home development, having recently started work on 55 affordable homes on Westfield Road in Wyre.
