Planning Application Submitted for Penwortham Housing Development

Planning Application Submitted for Penwortham Housing Development

by | 16/12/20

A planning application has been submitted this week for a new housing development in South Ribble.

The proposals being considered by the Council from Trafford Housing Trust include plans for up to 330 homes at Penwortham Mill – just under half of which will be available for affordable rent and shared ownership – and a new Lidl supermarket.

Fred Crawshaw, Senior Commercial Manager at Trafford Housing Trust said: “Trafford Housing Trust is committed to bringing forward affordable housing in South Ribble and across the North West as we continue to tackle the on-going housing crisis.

“The plans include the delivery of new public open space and upgraded footpath links to the nearby reservoir, which - through new trees, shrub planting and retention ponds – will deliver an ecological enhancement and improvement in biodiversity far better than the existing use of the land.

“By submitting a planning application residents and local businesses can have their say on the development, which we are confident will be welcomed in and around Penwortham. If we get planning permission we intend to be on-site in the summer.”

The plans for the new supermarket detail a sustainable store with 1,256m² sales area and will create around 40 new jobs for the local economy. The supermarket will also feature facilities including an instore bakery, customer toilet and ample parking for both cars and bicycles.

Lidl GB’s Regional Head of Property, Stuart Jardine, commented: “We have received an incredible amount of support from the local community and are delighted to announce that we have submitted a planning application. If granted this would mark a multi-million-pound investment in the area, and the creation of new jobs when the store opens. We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their support and feedback so far and look forward to receiving the decision in due course.”
