WCN Editorial Team 24 Jun 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Wigan Council’s planning committee has approved phase one of the £300M North Leigh Park regeneration scheme in Leigh, Wigan.

The long-term plans for the 185-acre North Leigh Park — to be delivered through a private-public partnership between Guernsey-based Long Port Group and Wigan Council — include 1,800 new homes.

Phase one will deliver 162 new homes, along with a new access point, green open spaces and wildlife habitat.

Additionally, the project will feature a 51,000sq m business park, 19-acres of green infrastructure and a community centre.

​The approval of the first detailed plans follows the granting of outline planning permission in February 2013.

Full remediation of the site is anticipated to take 18 to 24 months and will be completed in 2018.
