John Roocroft, Managing Director of Persimmon Homes Lancashire, said: “This project will bring eagerly-anticipated homes for local people to a site which has already been identified as appropriate for residential development, creating an extension of the town centre. It is an exciting opportunity for us to deliver housing, jobs and amenities for Darwen, breathing economic life into the area and laying the foundations for a thriving new community.”
Plans for the site include a range of two, three and four bedroom homes and the development will also offer significant investment in the local economy, with Persimmon contributing around £1.8 million to local primary school and highways improvements.
