Housing provider Laurus Homes has set out its first site in Lancashire with a 184-home development in Clitheroe, set to start on site in February next year, subject to planning consent.
The housebuilder, which is a joint venture between Trafford Housing Trust and housing association L&Q, has submitted an outline planning application for the site on Whalley Road; the 184 homes are split between a mix of one-bed apartments, two, three, four, and five-bed houses.
Around half of these properties will be made available for affordable rent or shared ownership.
Designed by architect PRP, the housing scheme already has outline consent with the housebuilder looking to submit a reserved matters application finalising its design next month. Subject to a positive decision, Laurus is aiming to start on site in February 2019.
Since launching in a joint venture in 2016, Laurus Homes has primarily concentrated its developments in Greater Manchester; the Clitheroe site represents its first foray into the Lancashire market.
The company is planning to build 2,000 new homes across the North West by 2020.
Projects currently on site include projects in Walkden and Whalley Range, while the company is also completing housing schemes on Washway Road, Altrincham, and Cross Street in Sale.
