Work on 228 Great Eccleston homes to begin in April

Housebuilder Bellway has acquired the 12 acres it needed to commence the delivery of the new neighbourhood, which was approved by Wyre Council last spring.

Remediation work will commence in April on the 228-home project, which will be known as Alderstone Park. The construction programme is estimated to take four years, according to the Newcastle-based Bellway Homes. The developer is aiming to have the neighbourhood’ showhomes finished this autumn, with the first properties on the market later this year.

Bellway will construct 87 two-bed, 100 three-bed, 38 four-bed, and five three-bed residences on the plot of land, which sits between Garstang Road and Copp Lane. The houses will be a mixture of detached and semi-detached properties, each with its own private garden and at least one allocated parking space.

Sales director at Bellway North West, Jenny Bell, was optimistic the new neighbourhood would find its residents quickly.

“Recently voted one of the most desirable places to live in the UK, Great Eccleston offers the best of both worlds, an idyllic rural village location with great schools, pubs, a regular farmers market and vibrant community spirit,” Bell said.

“It is also very well known for the annual Great Eccleston Show that draws visitors from all over the North West. Close to stunning countryside yet within easy reach of the North West’s major cities, we anticipate significant interest in these new homes when they are launched for sale later this year.”

Alderstone Park’s planning permission also included an additional 115 homes, to be built by Duchy Homes. Altogether, the approved project for 343 homes includes 102 affordable ones.

As part of the planning approval, Bellway will contribute £716,139 towards a new primary school and £392,050 towards improving secondary education in Wyre. An additional £1.2m is to be given to the council for a community hall, medical centre, public right of way improvements, and a local travel plan.

ADP designed the scheme, with Enzygo as the landscape architect. You can learn more about Alderstone Park by searching application reference number 22/00761/RELMAJ on Wyre Council’s planning portal.

Is the market still strong for teeny tiny suburban houses in the middle of nowhere with small windows and a postage stamp garden?
