Little Moor Hall Gardens

David Wilson Homes

Delivery of an inclusive and sustainable community

Our proposals

Our proposals

Little Moor Hall Gardens will provide a multi-generational housing offer, providing homes for the community, including:

  • Starter and affordable homes and homes for younger people and key workers.
  • 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes for working age families who can drive economic growth.
  • An Elderly Quarter which could offer a wide range of accommodation to meet the needs of older residents, with a supporting range of active/community uses and specialist care facilities.

A sustainable development site

The site is ideally located to deliver homes in the best possible location for Ormskirk and Aughton, and the wider area. 

Local services and amenities

Local services and amenities

The site is ideally located near to nearby schools, shops and health services.


Transport

Transport

  • There are two nearby train stations (Town Green and Aughton Park). 
  • Prescot Road provides quick and easy access to the M58 which will minimise the amount of traffic travelling through Ormskirk Town Centre and along the A59. 
  • Existing bus stops and routes are bordering the site.

A perfect 'fit'

A perfect 'fit'

The site is ideally located, given that:

  • It is surrounded on three sides by existing development and infrastructure, and in an area where there is already planned housing growth. The site can help to achieve growth which enables new community facilities. 
  • It represents a logical ‘fit’ with the existing layout of homes in the area, and will not close the gap to Holt Green. 
  • It is to the south-east of the settlement, so it will not generate significant amounts of new traffic in the already congested town centre.
  • Development on this site will safeguard land to the north, which may be needed in the longer-term for the future growth of the University.  

Safeguarding Green Belt

Safeguarding Green Belt

The natural boundaries of the site, with an established wooded area to the east, will restrict future growth and ensure that future development will not affect the strategic Green Belt, now or in the future


Suitability for development

Suitability for development

The side does not have significant environmental or ecological constraints that would prevent delivery.

 

Local benefits

We want to ensure that any forthcoming development also provides social, environmental and economic benefits for the wider community too.  Whilst still in development, the benefits arising from Little Moor Hall Gardens could include:  

  • Improvements to drainage infrastructure which resolves existing flood risks to properties at Parrs Lane and Prescot Road;
  • Road safety improvements around Town Green Primary School, including a new parking/drop-off area to resolve traffic issues.  We are also exploring the diversion of Prescot Road through the site to improve traffic flow. 
  • An expansion to local school facilities, including two new sports fields. 
  • New recreational facilities and areas of green space for local residents to enjoy, including a Country Park and an area of allotments. We anticipate that the school's enhanced sports facilities would also be available for community use.  
  • New social infrastructure, such as a local community “hub” with services and facilities which are accessible to all and will encourage social interaction amongst older residents.

We are committed to delivering energy-efficient homes that are both economically and environmentally sustainable.
