Bright new future for Primrose Mill site in Clitheroe, Lancashire
The dramatic transformation of a derelict mill site in Clitheroe to a smart new residential neighbourhood is now likely to become reality. Award winning house builder Miller Homes have stepped in to speed-up the delivery of a complex regeneration scheme that was originally granted planning consent back in 2008 and has been an aspiration of the council since 1991.
The brown-field Primrose Mill site off Woone Lane lies on the edge of the town, between adjacent farmland and the Primrose Millpond and reservoir. It covers an area of approximately six acres.
Michaela Lancaster, Miller Homes sales and marketing director said: “We are delighted to have secured such a prime location in Clitheroe and to be investing in The Ribble Valley area again. The new development, to be named 'Montgomerie Gardens' brings something new to the local property market. It will offer a range of properties from first time buyer apartments up to four bedroom family homes. The new homes will appeal to people who wish to move on to, or up the property ladder and stay close to the town centre. It will also attract new residents in to the area to the benefit of the local economy."
Miller Homes anticipates starting work on the infrastructure and the new homes in the summer with sales due to start in autumn. They are continuing the work initially started by Beck Developments who recently completed affordable homes in this area.
