A plot of “redundant” land in the Liverpool City Region has been sold to a housebuilder for an undisclosed sum.
Countryside has purchased the former Deacon Trading Estate, which spans around five acres and comes with outline planning permission for 82 new homes.
The planning consent allows for the demolition of existing buildings on the Earle Street site in Earlestown, Newton-le-Willows, to make way for 67 houses and 15 apartments.
John Dunlop, director of development and residential capital markets at property agent CBRE, which sold the site on behalf of owner Gresham House, says: “We are pleased to confirm the sale of the site at Earle Street to Countryside.
“It is well located for residential development and the purchase will facilitate the transformation of redundant land into much needed housing provision for the local area.”
