Northstone welcomes feedback on 110-home Wigan resi

The homebuilder has launched a consultation on a scheme to deliver 110 homes in Atherton.

Located on land west of Stothert Street, the 2.5-acre site would comprise houses, bungalows, and apartments. The homes would range from one to three beds. 

Around 108,000 sq ft of biodiverse greenspace would provide public pedestrian and cycle routes.

Consultation topics include what household technology or equipment should be standard, and what sustainability measures residents would like to see.

The homes would be available for private rent through developer Letta.

Both Northstone and Letta are part of Peel L&P Group. 

Bernadette Barry, development manager at Northstone, said: “These are some of the first homes to be built specifically for private rent through Letta and we’re excited to start discussions with local people in Atherton to develop our plans further to meet local housing needs.

“The UK’s housing crisis is not improving,” Barry continued. “With an increase in demand for rented properties, these homes will offer a better quality of living which we believe is more than just bricks and mortar and about the well-connected communities surrounded by nature and sustainable travel options that we’re trying to create. 

“Renters will also have the added reassurance that the homes are being managed by a trusted housing company and we’d encourage people to give us their feedback and share their views on the consultation website before plans are submitted to Wigan Council.”

Imagine your front door opening right out onto a road with no pavement. Classic suburbia. No thanks, I’ll take my city centre apartment with everything I need walking distance away instead.

I think these look really nice. I like the communal garden in the centre.

Actually, this scheme is pretty good. Mix of housing types too.
