Burnley Road, Loveclough

Scale: 8.4 acres, 80 units

In May 2019 Hollins Strategic Land received an outline planning permission for up to 80 units on an 8.4 acre site west of Burnley Road in Loveclough, Rossendale. The site was approved at planning committee and will provide much needed housing in the Borough. The site is sustainably located with key services nearby and a bus route operating on Burnley Road which provides direct services to Manchester city centre and Burnley town centre.

The benefits of the site include:

  • It is a logical and sustainable extension to Loveclough;
  • It will deliver much needed housing, all of which can be provided in the next 5 years;
  • It will provide a good quality housing mix sought by the Council including executive style and affordable housing (30%);
  • It will enhance and provide meaningful links to the existing green infrastructure and extend existing public open space;
  • It is in a sustainable location well served by frequent bus services to the wider area;
  • It is well contained adjacent to existing built development and represent an organic extension to Loveclough.
