Plans tabled for first tranche of Peel Hall homes 

More than 400 homes, 27 acres of public open space, and a community centre feature in the initial phase of the 170-acre Warrington masterplan. 

Countryside Partnerships, part of Vistry Group, has submitted plans for the first phase of the Peel Hall project, located on Green Belt bordering the M62, Poplars Avenue, Windermere Avenue, and Grasmere Avenue.

The scheme will feature 405 homes, 171 of which will be available for shared ownership and 65 for affordable rent tenure via housing group, Torus.  

The remaining 169 properties will be sold on the open market under Vistry’s Bovis and Linden Homes brands. 

In addition, the plans include three full-size adult football pitches and two junior pitches. A new community centre is also proposed to replace the existing Radley Common Community Centre 

Gemma Hardy, managing director of Vistry Merseyside and Cheshire West, said: “A big part of our vision for Peel Hall is to provide new facilities and services for the community, enabling existing and future residents to enjoy new open spaces and sports activities and to promote healthy living. 

“By bringing some of these forward in the first phase of development the community can take advantage of them quickly, with further services due in later phases.” 

To learn more about the plans, search for reference number 2024/00142/REMM on Warrington Council’s planning portal. 

Chris Bowen, managing director of Torus Developments, added: “As the North West’s largest provider of affordable homes, with a longstanding presence in Warrington, Torus is dedicated to its mission of building great homes and thriving communities. 

“Peel Hall not only represents a commitment to investing into building 595 new, affordable homes but the start of a wider £150 million investment in our existing properties and communities. Peel Hall is very a much catalyst for a wider programme of positive change across Warrington and I’m delighted to be celebrating this milestone with Vistry.” 

The submission of plans for Peel Hall phase one comes just over a year since Countryside bought the site from Satnam for more than £100m. 

Satnam has recently launched a legal challenge over Warrington’s recently adopted local plan.

Another chunk of green belt to go – Peel getting away with it again.
Why is no one listening to Joe public ?

    Hi Phil – this is not a Peel project. The site was owned by Satnam (who argued for it to be included as development land in the local plan). Satnam later sold it to Countryside.
