Approval for 174 new homes in Leyland for Kier Living

Kier Living new homes in Leyland

PWA Planning has gained planning approval on behalf of housebuilder Kier Living for a new residential development in Lancashire.

We secured planning consent for 174 homes on land off Croston Road in the Farington Moss area of Leyland.

The scheme, on 6.5 hectares of land, is part of a wider 350-home development that already had outline planning permission. Miller Homes is on site building its part of the development.

Paul Walton, director of PWA Planning, said: “We’re proud to be supporting Kier Living’s aspirations to create vital new housing in Lancashire.

“We’re witnessing strong demand for new homes in Preston and South Ribble as the City Deal continues bringing new investment and jobs to the area.”

Sue Warwick, regional director for Kier Living, said: “Croston Road represents a further step in Kier Living’s expansion in the North West, which has seen three new sites open in the last 12 months. The development will provide much-needed new homes that respond to the demand of the local market, as well as around £2m of investment in local infrastructure and affordable housing.”

The scheme will see a mix of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes created, including detached homes, townhouses and bungalows. It includes 27 homes for the affordable market.

It will link up to neighbouring developments through new footpaths and cycleways. The landscaping plan also includes public open space and living wall installations on some properties.
