ARLEY HOMES ND NORTHERN TRUST DELIVER NEW FAMILY HOMES IN NORTH WEST
5th September 2012
Arley Homes has confirmed that two of its new housing developments at The Maples, Fulwood and The Meadows in Coppull have completely sold out.
Both developments have been built on land formerly owned by Northern Trust, and have seen the creation of 52 new family homes in total. Northern Trust secured outline planning consent for residential development on both sites before selling to Arley Homes, who subsequently obtained detailed planning permission, built and sold the schemes.
John Cosgrave, Managing Director of Arley Homes, said: “The success of these two developments is extremely satisfying and clearly demonstrates there is still strong demand for good quality family homes in nice locations. Seeing buyers move into their new home is the culmination of many years’ hard work which, in this case, began with the landowner identifying the sites for residential development and securing planning approval. We acquired both sites because of their aspirational location and are on the lookout for similar opportunities across the region.”
Arley Homes initially acquired Northern Trust’s 2.7 acre site in Coppull, Chorley, and transformed the former Waggon and Horses pub site into a new housing development of traditionally-styled family homes. The Meadows enjoys a semi-rural location close to the A49 with good access to both the M6 and M61.
The Maples at Fulwood is an elegant development of four and five bedroom family homes, arranged around a quiet cul-de-sac with wonderful rural views. With a classic English architectural theme, this development was built on 1.2 acres of land on Lightfoot Lane, previously owned by Northern Trust.
Stephen Glenn, Land Executive at Northern Trust added “Northern Trust has worked with Arley Homes’ professional team on several occasions and have long been impressed by the quality of the homes they build. We are delighted they have completed sales on two sites which we had initially identified as being ideal for residential development. With a shortfall in the housing market, it is important for us to be able to deliver new housing developments to the local community and we will continue to work closely with Arley Homes on disposals of further suitable sites.”
