New housing development near Lancaster will ‘significantly boost the local community’

Homebuilder Russell Armer Homes has begun work on 65 two- to four-bedroom homes, as well as one-bedroom apartments, at its Bowland Fold development in the village of Halton.

As part of the development, 13 affordable homes will be created for people with ties to the area and a significant sum of money will be given to Lancaster City Council and earmarked for the local community through the Newbies Bonus Scheme government houses.

In addition, 1.67 hectares of open public green space – which represents nearly 40% of the overall development area – will be created and will include a children’s play area. And there will be significant tree plantings and a biodiversity program implemented.

Improvements will be made to the existing watercourse that crosses the site to provide a central, biodiversity-rich ‘blue-green’ corridor to help manage and retain surface water from existing homes.

Nicky Gordon, Managing Director of Russell Armer Homes, said: “As with any development, we look closely at the benefits we can bring to the local community and are very passionate about improving the lives of local people.

“We listened to what residents would like as part of the Bowland Fold development, and we are proud to provide so many key amenities and facilities to energize the area.

“The development comes at an exciting time for Russell Armer Homes and sister company Genesis Homes as we begin construction of over 300 homes across three sites, and we look forward to creating a great community in Lancashire County with this latest one. development.”

The Bowland Fold development, located just off the High Road, offers a wide range of high quality homes which will suit a wide range of residential requirements, but primarily families through the provision of three and four bedroom homes.

A total of two one-bed apartments and 12 two-bedroom houses will also be built to meet all needs.

The proposed playground is for children under 12 and is part of the green space of the development.

In addition to the Bowland Fold development in Halton, Russell Armer Homes is currently building 157 homes as part of its Meadow Rigg development in Burneside Road, Kendal.
