Plans for £9m Astley Point approved in Wigan

Wigan Council has granted planning permission to Salcaul, a company backed by Betfred founder Fred Done, for a £9m residential-led development on Higher Green Lane in Astley.

Building work is set to begin in the summer on the project, which includes 32 apartments across five blocks, a restaurant entertainment venue, and landscaping. The first homes will go on sale, off-plan, to the public in the coming months.

It is envisaged that the houses will be ready for occupation by summer 2017.

The architect is Cartwright & Gross. The Environment Partnership developed the landscape designs, while planning advice is being provided by Euan Kellie Property Solutions.

Salcaul is a joint venture between Salboy and residential developer Redwaters, and has been set up specifically to deliver Astley Point. Salboy is a company owned by Fred Done and Simon Ismail, who develop schemes throughout the UK.

Ismail said: “This is the first project we have undertaken in Astley and we are really looking forward to producing a first class development that will provide much needed facilities for the local area.”
