    Planning

Lowton, Wigan

In October 2016, PBA secured full planning permission for 129 new homes in Lowton, Wigan, on behalf of Bloor Homes.

The 4.4 hectare site at Heath Lane in Lowton was safeguarded for future development beyond the 2026 plan period. Following representations submitted by PBA, Wigan Council agreed that there was a need for the site to come forward sooner in order to address the shortage of housing across the Borough. PBA subsequently submitted a full planning application and worked collaboratively with the Council towards successful approval of the scheme by Wigan Council’s Planning Committee.

The development will include a range of detached, semi-detached and terraced houses as well as apartments, to meet local housing needs.
