Pegasus Group is delighted to be involved in the Taylor Wimpey scheme at Halsnead Garden Village, Whiston, where a full application for 337 new homes was registered by Knowsley Council earlier this week, with Pegasus Group providing planning and EIA services.
The 40 acre development, named Fox Wood Garden Village, comprises a mix of three-and-four-bedroom properties centred around three-acres of mature woodland. The proposals have been designed to uphold garden village principles, and conform with the Council’s masterplan for the wider site, which is set to deliver up to 1,600 homes, employment land and a country park, and is one of the first 14 schemes to be awarded Garden Village status by the Government.
The development will also make a contribution of £2.3m to local services and infrastructure, will support local construction jobs, whilst new residents will contribute an estimated £8.8m per year to the local economy.
“This development will provide much needed family homes for Whiston, in an attractive neighbourhood which fully aligns with Knowsley Council’s vision for the wider Garden Village. It also provides an economic boost and show of confidence in the area at a time of huge uncertainty in the wider economy”.
The application is now being considered by Knowsley Council Officers with a decision due in November.
