Newton-le-Willows homes get consent

Housebuilder Taylor Wimpey has been granted planning permission for a residential development on land at Common Road in Newton-le-Willows, Merseyside.

Manchester-based consultancy HOW Planning secured the detailed consent enabling the delivery of 142 family homes.

The planning application was submitted in full to St Helens Council, following community consultation and liaison with council officers.

Isla Longmuir, senior planner at HOW Planning, said: “Taylor Wimpey’s development provides a great opportunity for St Helens Council to address their immediate housing shortfall. Now that it has been given the go-ahead the scheme will be delivered providing much needed new housing for the local area.”

The 12-acre site occupies a location within walking distance to local shops at Earlestown town centre and Newton-le-Willows. The development will be made up of 142 three and four bedroom homes.  Planning permission includes site access arrangements as well as the detailed site layout to include house types, landscaping and public open space.

I could weep. How come this proposal was knocked back a few years ago, only to raise it’s ugly head now and to be given the go ahead….

Should that read “Common Road” not “Common Lane?”

Indeed John, thanks for pointing out – this has been amended.

A common mistake.

It would help if the article stated whether it was Green Belt land or not.
