Developer appeals for land to satisfy demand in Warrington

THE developer behind Warrington’s latest housing venture is appealing for more land in a bid to satisfy high demand in the town.

Elan Homes has already seen sell-out success at Gosling Park in Croft and has secured six ‘early bird’ reservations at Hall Gardens in Walton ahead of the development launching ‘off plan’ this weekend (September 12/13).

Demand for homes in the town is such that according to Zoopla, Warrington house price growth outperformed London with an increase of 5% in the first half of the year.

Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, says: “One of the reasons that Warrington and the surrounding villages appeal to so many homebuyers is the area’s strong commuter links – Liverpool, Chester and Manchester are all easily accessible. The launch of Hall Gardens will be a welcome boost to the local housing market, providing 14 new homes but we don’t want to rest on our laurels. We want to continue to grow our business and provide more new homes for local people.

“Government figures show that nationally housing completions are at their highest since the financial crisis struck in 2008 but if we are to continue to meet demand and help supply the 250,000 new homes the country needs a year we need more land.”

Elan’s core market is in and around Cheshire, including Warrington, where the Ellesmere Port based company has developed a solid reputation as a quality builder.

Elan will consider land across the region, with or without planning consent.

“The new Rural Productivity Plan will make it easier for villages to allocate land for new homes we’re keen to work with landowners and local authorities to provide new homes,” Marie adds.

“We are also looking for strategic land and our highly skilled team will use their expertise to progress development which can include change of use or rezoning land from brownfield to residential.”

Anyone with land available with development potential is invited to contact Elan via the website www.elan-homes.co.uk.

The initial release at Hall Gardens includes five-bedroom detached executive homes priced from £549,995 to £574,995.
