More new homes proposed for Standish

more homes in standish

Details of the extension to the Barrowcroft Green housing estate in Standish have been lodged, showing 116 new homes.

Developers HIMOR won planning permission in 2017 on appeal for the land between the existing new estate and the railway line on Rectory Lane.

They had three years to put in detailed plans for the scheme or the permission to build – given by a Government planning inspector after a public inquiry when Wigan Council refused the application – would lapse.

The detailed scheme includes 29 ‘affordable’ homes and the retention of two existing ponds.

Access would be through the Barrowfield estate as decided in the 2017 application.

The scheme – which the application suggests will be built by Wainhomes –shows a mix of semi-detached and detached houses and apartments.
