FOR SALE R0656 - Residential Development Land, Nell Lane, Cuerden, Leyland, PR25 5TB


8.225 acres (3.329 hectares) or thereabouts

Extensive frontage to tree lined leafy lane

Allocated for residential development in Chorley Borough Council Local Plan

All main services available



The land is situated south of Nell Lane which links Wigan Road with Shady Lane beyond which is the wide rolling expanse of Cuerden Valley Park. It is conveniently placed for comprehensive neighbourhood amenities including shops and schools, and there is easy access onto the surrounding motorway network resulting in it being strategically placed for the city of Preston, Central Lancashire towns and indeed commuting to Manchester.

The land is relatively level, easy to develop and provides an exciting opportunity to create an exclusive scheme.


From Junction 28 on the M6 proceed east and turn left at the traffic lights controlled crossroads and proceed along Wigan Road for approximately ¾ mile when Nell Lane is then on the right.


The land is allocated for residential and employment use (Policy EP1 and HS1) in Chorley Borough Local Plan adopted 2015.

Planning Permission was granted on the 20th August 2013 for 52 style park homes and replacement community building along with bowling green, allotments and pavilion (App No. 11/00941/FULMHA). In the response to Pre-Application Advice and consultations with Paul Whittingham, Development Control Manager to Chorley Borough Council, the principle of developing the site for residential purposes is acceptable as is the illustrative layout for residential development for 90 units including 30% affordable housing.

In accordance with the requirements of William Tay, Highway Engineer to Lancashire County Council, a Transport Assessment and Residential Travel Plan was prepared and submitted by VTC (Highway and Transportation Consultants) which was regarded as acceptable and confirmed the ability to create a footpath along the southern side of Nell Lane to link up with the footpath and bus stop on Wigan Road.

In the Ecology Report submitted to accompany the park home application reference was made to the discovery of Japanese Knotweed which has since been eradicated.


The site is believed to be Freehold and free from Chief Rent.


All main services are believed to be available but purchasers should make their own enquiries.
