Plans to knock down an industrial estate and build 22 new homes have emerged again.

The proposed development includes 14 mews houses and four apartments

Initial plans submitted to Bolton Council are identical to those submitted five years ago.

However, since then planning permission for the development has expired.

The outline planning application submitted again reveals the details of the proposed development.

It said: “The properties themselves are of good design, providing accommodation appropriate for family living. Moreover, level access will also be provided, into all buildings, thus meeting a variety of mobility needs. However, the two first floor apartments can only be accessed via stairs.”

The houses would be four-bedroomed family accommodation over two-and-a-half storeys while the apartments would be a mixture of one and two bedrooms.

In total, 24 parking spaces would be created, providing one designated parking space per dwelling.

The applicant, KC Sheet Metal, is based in Lytham St Annes but has a unit in the Halliwell industrial estate.

When the planning committee voted in favour of the plans in 2014, officers at the town hall recommended that councillors approve the proposal despite the applicant not offering any Section 106 contributions.

Planning officers are due to decide the outcome of the latest application by August.
