“Affordable” homes and land gifted to NHS for medical centre as part of new development


PLANS for more than 100 new homes on former green belt land at Lymm will include “affordable” properties and land gifted to the NHS for a new medical centre in the area.

Bellway has received planning consent for a new residential development in Lymm, comprising 108 properties, following on from the first phase of the Tanyard Farm site, which had been opposed by local residents.

Located off Rushgreen Road, the housebuilder has now exchanged contracts on the land, which is 10 acres in size.

The new development will be known as Narrowboat View, providing an impressive range of two-bedroom apartments, two and three-bedroom mews, three-bedroom townhouses, semi-detached and detached houses plus four-bedroom townhouses and detached family homes.

Each property at Narrowboat View has been expertly designed to an exceptionally high standard, with attractive features and all housing M4 (2) compliant, which means they will be accessible and adaptable for disabled use.
With its desirable location in Lymm, purchasers at Narrowboat View will enjoy a short walk from the development into the village, and some properties will boast a beautiful canal-side setting too.

Grace Yarlett, Sales Director at Bellway, says: “We are thrilled to have exchanged contracts and are excited to be returning to Lymm. The first phase of this Tanyard Farm site was such a success so naturally we can’t wait to be back, delivering more homes in the affluent and leafy village of Lymm.”

Bellway hopes to start on-site by the Summer, with the first properties expected to be released for sale in Autumn.
In addition to the new development, Bellway has made Section 106 contributions of circa £ 1 million, the housebuilder has also gifted land to the NHS to help bring forward a new medical centre in the locality, plus 30% of the properties will be affordable housing.

Described as a “superb project”, Bellway worked with several North West-based businesses on the design, planning and purchase, including APD Architects, TEP Ecology, Shoosmiths and Gateley Solicitors, Eddisons Highways, E3P Ground and Lees Roxburgh Drainage.
Grace added: “We are hoping construction on site commences in the coming months and aim to start selling the homes later this year. We anticipate huge demand.”

  1. Medical centre will never be built Bellway may well give WBC the money under the section 106 rules. WBC will just waste the money on another project unrelated to what the money was intended for
