Ground broken on Leyland resi scheme

Kier Living Northern has broken ground on its 174-home Farington Moss scheme in South Ribble.

The £37m development of two, three, and four-bedroom homes was bought by Kier Living as part of its joint venture with Homes England and Cross Keys Homes, and secured planning permission in July. Construction is set to begin at the end of the month.

South Ribble Council is working with Kier to invest around £2m towards local infrastructure services and affordable housing.

The scheme is part of a wider 350-home development for which secured outline consent for in late 2014. It is due for completion in 2024.

Miller Homes is also on site building its part of the development.

Sue Warwick, managing director for Kier Living Northern, said: “We are delighted to have broken ground at Farington Moss and look forward to work beginning this month. Farington Moss is a fantastic location and the mix of new build, high quality homes will benefit from a village setting with close links to the M6 and the rest of the North West.

“Kier Living is committed to investing in local communities and we look forward to working with key local stakeholders to make a positive contribution to the local economy from scouring local contractors to investing in new infrastructure.”

PWA Planning helped gain planning permission on the site. Geoff Parry Associates was the architect.
