Carr Lane Residential Scheme
Acting on behalf of Taylor Wimpey, HOW Planning submitted a reserved matters planning application for a new housing development in Prescot, Merseyside. The application for 173 new homes, which will be built on land at the former Prysmian Cables site at Carr Lane, is part of a wider mixed-use scheme which was approved in outline in late 2016.
The 4.83 ha site is situated in a sustainable location to the South West of Prescot and forms part of a wider area which previously contained a series of buildings associated with the former cable manufacturing complex. Outline approval for the wider scheme comprises a total of up to 750 new homes and up to 929sq m of commercial/industrial buildings. The site has been cleared and the roads constructed, which will service the new homes.
There is a range of local amenities and facilities, including recreational facilities and local shops located within close proximity to the site which provide opportunities for residents to easily travel to and from the site and support the wider urban area.
