A HOME builder is hoping to start building 250 new homes in Winnington this summer.

The development by Anwyl Homes will take place on two parcels of land which were formerly occupied by Winnington Business Park and Avenue Engineering Park.

Outline planning permission for site has already been secured, with the developer currently preparing reserved matters applications for the mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom properties.

These will be built in detached, semi-detached and mews styles, with other properties taking the form of apartments.

The site will also benefit from a contribution of approximately £1.2 million to improve local community facilities, including schools, healthcare, parks, play spaces, sports pitches and roads.

Anwyl Homes say that home building will form part of a wider project that will create jobs and shape a community, with commercial space, retail units and a family pub/restaurant also due to be provided.

John Grime, the company’s regional managing director, said: “Winnington is a very accessible, sustainable location, with excellent amenities close by.

“Indeed, it has become an aspirational and very popular place to live and is perfect for our family-orientated new homes.

“Our new carefully crafted homes will provide a boost to the local housing supply and we’ll be making financial contributions to education, healthcare, highways, parks, play spaces and sports pitches.

“These will be worth around £1.2 million in total, depending on the final number of homes, including almost half a million pounds towards local education provision.

“There will also be an array of properties ideal for first time buyers and we’ll be including around 15 per cent affordable housing to help meet local housing needs.”

Subject to detailed planning consent, Anwyl Homes hopes to begin construction work this summer, with a view to having homes on sale and show homes open by autumn.

It also hopes that the first homes will be occupied by spring 2021.

The development will be phased over three to four years.
