Northstone unveils £12m plans for Rossendale neighbourhood

The homebuilder has launched a consultation on its proposals for 50 homes in the Lancashire village of Edenfield.

Northstone, part of Peel L&P, is seeking to build 50 homes in a variety of styles, ranging from two- to five-bedroom houses.

Of the 50 proposed homes, 15 will be available for shared ownership or affordable rent.

The site, located off Blackburn Road, was recently released from the Green Belt as part of Rossendale Council’s wider residential plan for the area.

Plans for the new homes comprise EV charge points, increased loft and floor insulation, triple glazed windows, and heat saving technology.

Community gardens would allow residents to come together and grow their own produce.

Wider proposals for the village hope to increase pedestrian safety along Burnley Road, surrounding Edenfield C.E. Primary School. These include a 34-space car park, drop-off points, and a dedicated footpath.

Bernadette Barry, development manager at Northstone, said: “At Northstone we consider the environments and communities that surround our developments to be just as important as the homes themselves…

“We’re looking forward to speaking to local people in more detail about the plans and how these can be developed to suit their needs and would encourage people to have their say as part of the public consultation before we submit plans to the council.”

The project’s development cost is £12m.

Northstone hopes that construction on the development will begin in spring 2024, with the first properties to be occupied that winter.

A public exhibition will be held from 11am until 4pm on Saturday 11 February at Edenfield Community Centre.

Traffic is already a nightmare through the village and all these proposed housing developments [ a total of 400 houses ] is only going to make it much worse . Plus both of the local primary schools are already full to capacity .

By Graham Wilson

The cumulative highway impact of this scheme and the adjacent Taylor Wimpey site will have a significant detrimental impact on highway safety and traffic’s flows – the nearby junction and routes through Edenfield are currently at peak capacity. No additional development should be permitted
