Warrington apartments primed for approval 

Park Equity Invest’s 76-flat redevelopment of Arpley House on Wilson Patten Street is due to be given the green light by the council’s planning committee later this week. 

Arpley House would be demolished to make way for the four-storey Warrington development but part of the existing door surround would be retained and displayed in the communal residents’ garden, according to architect Falconer Chester Hall.  

The scheme is Falconer Chester Hall’s latest in Warrington after the architect designed Bank House, a 10-storey residential development for Centre Projects Holdings. 

Park Equity Invest’s project would feature a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, 15 of which would be affordable. 

The developer will also pay £175,299 towards health, town centre travel planning and public open space. 

Warrington Council hopes the scheme will help boost housing delivery in the borough. At present, the authority cannot demonstrate a five-year onward supply of deliverable housing land. 

“[The scheme] would deliver a welcome addition to the borough’s housing stock and meet an identified need for affordable accommodation,” a report to Warrington’s planning committee states. 

Zerum is the planning consultant for the project.
