September 29, 2020 New northern-based homebuilder, Northstone has submitted plans to Bolton Council for 108 design led energy-efficient family homes at Garnet Fold. The plans for the land, located off St Helens Road (A579) in Bolton, include a mix of housing types and sizes to suit first time buyers, families and those looking to downsize to a smaller property. The site, which includes a number of affordable homes, is allocated for residential development in Bolton Council’s adopted Local Plan. Northstone’s vision is led by thoughtful and modern design both internally and externally, with increased insulation and smart energy-saving technology to help residents save money on their fuel bills and hyper-fast industry-leading home broadband. Pedestrian-led streets help to reduce traffic speeds and the design creates spaces to enhance and encourage a sense of community. The site will feature improved footpaths and cycle links for the existing community and new woodland, plants and hedgerows will encourage birds, bees and insects to enhance the environment and biodiversity Bernadette Barry, Development Manager at Northstone, part of Peel L&P, said: “At Northstone, we pride ourselves on ensuring our schemes are sensitively designed to complement the surrounding residential areas and countryside. “We embrace creating innovative, exceptional new developments and communities that focus on the needs of residents and our proposals for Garnet Fold will deliver this vision.” As seen at the Northstone’s maiden development in Westhoughton, homes will be modern with open-plan layouts that can be adapted. They will also feature large windows to fill rooms with light and secure boxes for internet deliveries to be deposited. A number of homes will also benefit from a garden room, suitable for storage or use as an office. Silkash in Westhoughton, Bolton, has recently celebrated its show home launch and is now open for viewings, by appointment only. To speak to a member of the sales team, please call: 01942 460001.
