 The homes will be built in Cowlishaw, which is between Royton and Shaw in Greater Manchester. The site off Cocker Mill Lane will eventually feature 201 new homes and five acres of green space, including a new orchard. The 25-acre development, which is north of Oldham, will overlook a neighbouring golf course.

Claire Jarvis, managing director for Redrow Lancashire, said: “Our new development will provide a better way for people to live, with homes of a high quality being built alongside green areas where residents can spend time outdoors. These natural spaces will include a community orchard as well a pond and other habitats where native wildlife can thrive. New footpaths will also link the properties to neighbouring fields and woodland, while a tree-lined boulevard will run through the centre of the development.

“Our homebuyers have told us they also prioritise private outdoor space, particularly post-pandemic, so many of the homes will be detached with gardens and driveways.”

Planning consultant Ryan & May managed the reserved matters planning application on Redrow’s behalf, which also includes 21 two and three-bedroom affordable properties.

All the new homes will hail from Redrow’s Arts & Crafts-inspired Heritage Collection, in a range of three to five-bedroom designs from 1,081 sq ft to 1,855 sq ft.
