Planning consent granted for 12 more new homes on the Springside Rawtenstall site.
Development Control for Rossendale Borough Council granted planning permission for a further 12 new homes on the Springside Rawtenstall site, off Newchurch Road. Councillors voted unanimously in support of the additional development after 9 years of marketing the site for employment use had shown no demand.
B and E Boys are in the process of completing 15 town houses on the site and it is hoped work will commence next year on 12 predominantly semi-detached properties, can continue next year.
The site is close to the popular Bank Street shopping area as well as many other local amenities such as the East Lancashire Railway, Golf Rossendale driving range, Ski Rossendale, Rawtenstall Market, The Adrenalin Gateway, and motorway networks to Manchester.
The site will also see the conversion of Springside Cottage in to a 4 bedroom family home.
B & E Boys have been building new homes in Rossendale for over 40 years and are NHBC registered.
The scheme not only ensures that the Springside Housing site is completed but will also protect jobs at the Company.
