Prospect purchases Warrington plot for 110 resi

Work is expected to start on site early next year after the developer completed on the 10.5-acre Hollins Green site off Manchester Road.

Richborough promoted the site which is earmarked for residential development in Warrington Council’s local plan. Outline planning consent was granted for the scheme at the end of last year, and Prospect Homes has confirmed it will be submitting a reserved matters application in the coming months.

Of the 110 homes, 30% will be affordable across a mix of one- to four-bed properties, and the development also includes a children’s play area according to the proposals.

The project team for the approved outline plans featured Nineteen47, Asteer Planning, Ramm Sanderson, Tyler Grange, BWB Consulting, and HUB.

Prospect will make section 106 contributions of more than £800,000 to fund local sport, education, and health provision.

Sustainable transport improvements also feature in the financial agreement, with a 3.5-mile cycle lane along Manchester Road planned.

Michael Orgill, managing director of Prospect Homes, said: “Warrington is an area that has been in our sights for a while, the Richborough team did a great job and we’re really pleased that we can now move forward with the next step of this development with the aim of starting on site in 2025.”

“Homes will include air source heat pumps, solar panels, wastewater heat recovery systems and electric car charging points.”

Harry Jackson, regional manager at Richborough, added: “Huge thanks go to our in-house team and supporting consultants who promoted the site through the local plan, secured outline planning consent in December 2023 and marketed the site on the open market, ensuring best value for all stakeholders along the way.”
