Bellway Homes has acquired more then 12 acres of land off Pocket Nook in Lowton for a new residential development.

The new development will be known as Pocket Green, featuring 119 high quality new build homes. Catering for the housing needs within the locality, as well as those further afield looking to move to Lowton, Bellway will deliver a mix of three and four bedroom properties, including both semi-detached and detached homes.

Pocket Green is situated in a popular residential location within the suburban village of Lowton, just two miles from Leigh. It is ideally placed for commuters with the A580, M60 and M6 all within close proximity and conveniently located between Wigan, Warrington, Manchester and Liverpool.

Forming a focal point at the centre of the development will be a large green open space, highlighting its semi-rural setting and enhancing its appeal with local homebuyers.

Louise Chamberlain, sales director at Bellway Homes, comments: ‘The plans for Pocket Green are superb; it promises to be a stunning residential development. Perfectly placed and offering a fantastic range of three and four bedroom homes on a spacious site, we are confident Pocket Green will be in huge demand.’

In addition to the new residential development, Bellway Homes will make a significant financial contribution to the local community, including £752,675 towards local infrastructure. There are 20 affordable units, which will be sold under the local authority equity loan scheme, and a further 10 units to be sold to a housing association for affordable rent.

Groundworks at Pocket Green are already underway with a sales launch scheduled in the Spring time.
