Our scheme at Northfield is situated in Ashurst Ward, Skelmersdale, opposite St James Primary School. It is one of our largest sites with homes around the perimeter of the site and a single connecting road.
The site is an area of waste land that had previously been used as part of a shallow coal mining works.
The development provides 27 new affordable homes for West Lancashire Borough Council including eight two-bedroom houses, seventeen three-bedroom houses and two four-bedroom houses.
The almost circular plot of land sits separately from another residential development and has a number of footpaths that lead to the school and Ashurst shopping centre.
• Work started in March 2021
• Building work completed October 2022.
The site neighbours the highly regarded St James Primary School and Tawd Valley Developments have been very keen to include the school in the development process and have recently funded the purchase of eight iPads with the help of the wider design and delivery team.
The site has been designed with modern living in mind and provides generous parking provision with more than 60 car parking spaces being created for residents and visitors.
On completion, Affordable Rent Properties will be owned and managed by West Lancashire Borough Council.
