Housebuilder Taylor Wimpey has submitted plans for a 173-home development that will form part of Prescot Park, the regeneration of the former Prysmian Cables site in Prescot.
Plans for the 63-acre Prescot Park site were given outline approval in late 2016, and Taylor Wimpey has now submitted a reserved matters planning application for a 12-acre site, which covers Parcel D of Prescot Park’s masterplan.
Parcel D is the largest area designated for housing in the site’s outline plans.
The Prescot Park site is one of the area’s key regeneration projects. Outline plans for the wider scheme includes 750 new homes and 10,000 sq ft of commercial and industrial space. The site has already been cleared and infrastructure works completed.
Emma Williams, planner at HOW, which acted for Taylor Wimpey on the project, said: “Taylor Wimpey deliver schemes which have a strong regional identity and which meet local housing needs and we are confident that this scheme will prove to be a similarly successful development.
“If given the go-ahead this phase of residential development will be delivered very quickly, providing much needed new homes for the local area.”
Other housebuilders are also set to work on the project, including Anwyl Homes’ Lancashire division, which acquired a nine-acre part of the site in June this year, paving the way for a £23m residential project.
