Loushers Lane site earmarked for housing

Sarah Townsend

Widnes-based company Premier Loushers has secured outline planning consent to redevelop a site in Latchford, Warrington, into 140 homes.

Land has also been set aside for the provision of a link road from Loushers Lane towards Latchford town centre, a strategic aim of the local Southern Gateway masterplan.

The site is partially occupied by fuel tanker company Premier Tanker Services’ workshops, parking and storage bays, adjacent to Distillery House at Premier Business Park.

The rest of the site is covered by open space and the Latchford Sidings Local Wildlife Site.

Under the plans by the developer, whose director is named on Companies House as Allan Cunliffe, up to 140 houses would be built on the site. Meanwhile, the wildlife site would undergo “significant landscape and ecological enhancement” through both on-site and off-site provision, according to the planning documents.

Of the homes, 30% would be classed as affordable to help address the borough’s shortfall of affordable housing.

The finer details of the scheme are to be determined through future reserved matters applications to Warrington Council.

Euan Kellie Property Solutions advised on planning. The project team also includes consultancies Brock Carmichael, which led on the masterplanning, SCP Transport, on highways, and RSK on landscape and ecology.

Tim Claxton Property advised on the scheme’s viability.

30% are gonna be affordable housing for citizens on low incomes on this housing devolpment. HOW MUCH IS AFFORDABLE.. if about 100 properties are built at roughly £375,000 for a new BIG build 3bed house,, they have got to build about 40 SMALLER 3 bed properties priced about £250,000.. AFFORDABLE.

Good, as long as they don’t disturb any wildlife.
