Peel presses on with first phase of £155m Wigan resi 

Mosley Common will eventually provide 1,100 homes across 156 acres in Tyldesley and a consultation on the first 228 is now up and running. 

Peel L&P is inviting the public to provide feedback on its plans for the first phase and the wider £155m project after Wigan Council signed off on the masterplan in late September. 

Phase one, to be delivered by Peel’s housebuilding arm Northstone, will feature a mix of homes to suit first-time buyers, families, downsizers, and older people with later living needs. 

Following a recent trial, Northstone will also create a specially designed accessible home for families with dependent relatives and proposes to introduce multi-generational homes as well. 

Around 25% of the properties are will be available on affordable tenures. 

The consultation will run until 22 November. 

“This public consultation follows feedback sessions we ran earlier this year with the community to develop the masterplan for the area and we’re looking forward to working with local people again to develop the next stage of these exciting plans before submitting a planning application later this year,” said Annabel Baker, Peel L&P’s associate director of development planning.

“Our ambition is to create a community with quality housing, accessible transport and better community facilities surrounded by extensive parkland for local people to enjoy. 

“Working with Northstone, the first phase will include well-designed homes with a low cost of living and environmental improvements at their heart.” 

The site at Mosley Common has been identified for residential development as part of Greater Manchester’s Places for Everyone plan, which has been submitted to the Secretary of State for examination. 

As well as homes, the scheme will feature a primary school, parkland, and a transport hub. 

The proposals include three green spaces: Mosley Woods, Mosley Mosslands, and Honksford Meadows. Peel said it hopes these parks will be destinations in their own right and help boost biodiversity. 

There are also several different neighbourhoods proposed: Tyldesley Fields, Mosley Woods, Bridgewater Village, Honksford Meadows, Mosley Village, and Platts Fold Fields. These would have their own character and would be brought forward by different housebuilders. 

The project team includes JTP, Turley, WSP, TTHC and BMD.
