Development Plan Information

Have your say about our Penwortham Mill Development Plan

Penwortham Mill is a development of 322 new homes and a new Lidl being proposed by Trafford Housing Trust under its Laurus Homes brand. As we have been unable to hold a public information event due to COVID-19, we have decided to publish our consultation documents online, and hold a virtual information event, and would urge local residents and potential homeowners to join us online to see plans for the development.

The planning information documents will available to view on submission.

Fred Crawshaw, Senior Commercial Manager at Trafford Housing Trust said:

“We will be submitting a joint planning application with Lidl in the summer of 2020, so this is a great opportunity for people to see and comment on our plans.  If we get planning permission we intend to be on-site early in the new year.

“Trafford Housing Trust is committed to bringing forward affordable housing in South Ribble and across the North West as we continue to tackle the current housing crisis.  Around half of the new homes at Penwortham Mill will be available for affordable rent and shared ownership.”
