PLANS have been submitted by a developer to build 270 homes on a large field next to the Formby Bypass.
Taylor Wimpey North West is behind the ‘reserved matters planning application’ and they hope to get permission from Sefton Council to carry out the development on land north of Brackenway.
The firm say the houses will be a mixture of mews, semi and detached two-storey homes, 30% of which will be ‘affordable housing’.
The site is approximately 36 acres of green space. As part of the plan, open grassland and drainage ponds will be created, as well as a new on-site play area, ecology enhancements, improved footpath connections throughout the site and to the local nature reserve, upgrades to the footpath and signage along Formby Bridleway, as well as pedestrian improvements along Deansgate Lane North.
The proposed scheme will be accessed via a new junction due to be constructed off Formby Bypass as well as an emergency access onto Paradise Lane, to be controlled by a collapsible bollard.
In addition, Taylor Wimpey will contribute £178,200 towards the Sefton Coast Mitigation Scheme.
Ian Harrison, Land and Planning Director at Taylor Wimpey North West, said: “The development will provide high quality new homes and investment for the local area.
“We are confident that our proposals will have a lasting, positive impact on the community .”
