Telereal Trillium is pleased to announce the sale of its residential development site in the seaside resort of Lytham St. Annes in Lancashire to Morris Homes.
The 11-acre site on Shepherd Road is the final parcel of land to be sold by Telereal Trillium on the former Department for Work and Pensions site following its previous sale of an adjoining 18.3 acre plot in 2013, which has subsequently been transformed into a major new residential community for the area, encompassing the development of a Booths supermarket, care home and bistro pub.
Telereal Trillium has worked closely with Fylde Borough Council to secure outline planning permission for the demolition of the redundant buildings on the site, which was vacated by long-term tenants Hewlett Packard in August 2018, and the construction of 160 new homes.
The development will now be taken forward by Cheshire-based Morris Homes, one of the country’s largest, independently owned housebuilders, which has previously delivered 124 new homes at the adjoining Clifton View development as part of the earlier residential-led regeneration of the wider DWP site.
Morris Homes have submitted a Reserved Matters application for 146 new homes following the approval of the outline planning application submitted by Telereal Trillium. The scheme will deliver a range of homes from 1 bedroomed apartments, 2 and 3 bedroom mews and townhouses as well as 3 and 4 bedroom detached. In line with the outlined planning application, the scheme will also provide 15% affordable housing and additional Public Open Space which will provide a link from Shepherd Road to the facilities on Heyhouses Lane.
Tom Harling, Senior Development and Disposals Manager at Telereal Trillium, said:
“We are pleased to reach an agreement with Morris Homes that will enable the remainder of this key development site to be regenerated for the benefit of the Lytham St. Annes area. Working closely with Fylde Borough Council over a number of years, Telereal Trillium has been able to secure a sustainable future for the entire site, establishing a new community that benefits from good access to local schools, shops and leisure facilities.”
Mark Cox, Regional Planning and Design Director said:
“We’re currently working with Fylde Borough Council to produce a residential development that will complement our previous phase and regenerate the Brownfield site. We are in the process of demolishing the remaining buildings and will be looking to progress with construction of the new homes once planning approval is received. We’re very excited about this next phase in Lytham St. Annes and our continued well-established relationship within the local community.”
Telereal Trillium was advised by Stephen Downey, Director at GL Hearn.
