Plans have been approved for new retirement bungalows in Penwortham.Advertisement
Fairhaven Housing Association has been granted planning permission to construct eight new bungalows at its Crownlee residential development.
The two-bedroom bungalows will increase the over 55s accommodation to 48 residential homes.
Designed as high-quality independent retirement homes, the planned bungalows include open living spaces, two spacious double bedrooms, private patios and views over the landscaped gardens.
Each bungalow will have access to off-street parking and storage facilities.

Crownlee also operates a private community centre, which as part of the expansion project, will receive significant investment to upgrade its communal and restaurant facilities.
Fairhaven is working alongside Preston architects, Cassidy + Ashton, which is delivering architect and planning services for the project. The practice designed the original Crownlee bungalows constructed in the early 1980s.
Work is scheduled to begin in August this year, and the bungalows are due to be completed by Spring 2022.

Andrew Atkinson, managing director at Fairhaven, said: “We are extremely proud to partner with two leading North West firms to deliver this project. We have a long professional history with Cassidy + Ashton who designed the original bungalows.
“Crownlee is a much loved and sought-after retirement location. The addition of these eight properties will help meet local demand by providing first class housing which promotes independence and wellbeing in later life.”
The over 55s bungalows at Crownlee will be available to reserve off plan from August 2021. Subject to the easing of Covid restrictions, potential purchasers will then be welcome to visit the facilities at Crownlee to make further enquiries.
