Wigan approves 100 homes, and 350,000 sq ft of shed space

The authority’s planning committee followed recommendations to grant permission for PLP’s plans for a quartet of warehouses and Bellway’s vision for a neighbourhood off Silk Mill Street.


PLP’s application for 350,000 sq ft of industrial space at Astley Park Way in Tyldesley was lodged at the end of last year, a revision of plans for a 300,000 sq ft scheme granted in 2017 which had lapsed.

Two of the four units will offer just above 34,000 sq ft, while the larger duo will measure 146,000 sq ft and 135,000 sq ft.

On the project team for this development are OWSP, PHP Architects, Hydrock, and Barry Chinn Associates.

Bellway’s plan to add a further 99 homes off Silk Mill Street to it’s 225-home Elements development, is earmarked for land previously designated as Green Belt.

The site’s status changed after the adoption of Places for Everyone, which with this permission enables Bellway to develop a mix of detached, semi-detached, and terraced properties there.

These homes will comprise of two-, three-, and four-bedroom homes, with 25% to be classed as affordable.

The number of homes has been reduced by six since the application was submitted almost 18 months ago.

Pegasus Group, LDS, Eddisons, Townsend Water Engineering, REFA, Redmore International, TEP, Ascerta, IGE Consulting, Red Acoustics, and Heritage Archaeology feature on the project team.

To view these plans, search for application reference number A/23/94952/MAJOR on Wigan Council’s planning portal.
