What used to be a mill in the centre of Bamber Bridge is going to become a major new housing estate.

Countryside homes has been granted planning permission for 188 new homes.

The Wesley Street Mill site, which was cleared in 2013, is to be built on in the £16.5million development.

Land director Ian Simpson said: “Our aim is to transform this brownfield site with high quality homes that are both affordable and available for a wide range of people. We have developed a successful partnership model, working with registered social landlords, private rental sector specialist, Sigma and local communities to create vibrant, mixed tenure neighbourhoods.

“We understand and appreciate the heritage of this site but also issues the local community has faced with a lack of progress on its redevelopment. Our partnership model enables us to build quickly and our approach to place making will see the rapid emergence of an attractive development.”
