Housing development aims to bring investment into area

by Henry James (October 2020)

A PLANNING application from Barratt Homes aims to deliver much-needed homes in Thornton, alongside “significant investment” into the area.

The new development located on Lydiate Lane, named Sundial Place, will offer a collection of two, three and four bedroom homes.

As well as 183 new properties, the five star homebuilder will also provide an almost £500k contribution to the area via the planning agreement with Sefton Borough Council.

Almost £300k of the monies will go to education places at primary schools in the area, while nearly £90,000 will offer upgrades and improvements to offsite open spaces.

An additional £20,000 will also contribute to the creation of a new roundabout to serve the new community.

As part of the new development, the homebuilder will also continue its aim of creating wildlife friendly habitats within the new community, and will provide a collection of features within its show home gardens to encourage this, including bird boxes, hedgehog highways and hedgehog homes.

Robert Holbrook, managing director at Barratt Homes North West, said: “As a five star housebuilder, it’s important that we not only bring a range of award-winning homes to the region, but invest in the surrounding area within which we are building.

“The development has now launched with properties available to reserve, and we’re thrilled we are able to contribute to the improvements of amenities in Thornton and look forward to how the area will progress during our time on-site.

“Sundial Place is now open on an appointment only basis, for those interested, I would encourage to visit the website or call the sales line to book an appointment with one of our friendly Sales Advisers.”
