A developer has got twice the reason to celebrate its first anniversary after securing planning approval to complete its first development of 150 homes in Bolton.

Northstone, part of Peel L&P, already had planning consent from Bolton Council for the first 19 homes, now it has gained approval for the remaining 131 homes at Roscoe’s Farm in Westhoughton, Bolton.

The Bolton Road development will provide a mix of highly energy efficient two-, three- and four-bed homes. These will, it is claimed, be highly energy efficient and meet local housing needs. The development is also expected to generate 160 construction jobs to support the local economy.

Northstone, which launched in October 2018, is expected to start on site in Westhoughton next month with some homes available to buy from spring 2020.

“We set out a year ago, to offer more than a traditional housebuilder and we have a clear vision for our homes to be led by thoughtful, quality design and sustainability to help create exceptional places, inside and out,” said Phil Wilson, Northstone’s chief executive.

“We’re really pleased that Bolton Council has recognised this vision as well as the local need for these homes and this planning consent couldn’t be better timed as we celebrate a year in business this month.”
