  • What's proposed

    What's Proposed

    We are proposing to develop a high quality residential development which respects the site’s location on the edge of Haslingden. Our current proposals are for 131 new homes alongside areas of landscaping and new public open space.

    The site lies at the western entry to the town. Development here provides an opportunity to create an attractive introduction to the town. The size of the site allows for a mix of properties to be provided which will cater for the needs of young couples, families of all sizes and older people who wish to remain in the town. There is also an opportunity to develop a housing layout which responds positively to the location of the site in the wider landscape. Homes will be up to 2.5 storeys in height, and the design and materials will be reflective of the local character of Haslingden.
