A site in Pickley Green in Leigh, Lancashire, has been selected as the location of a new Custom Build housing scheme, subject to planning. The five-plot development will support four- and five-bedroom homes with outline planning permission, available to self-builders from Spring 2019.
The area was identified by a local Custom Build enabler as an ideal location for a new housing, with the planning process for the scheme to be conducted by Self and Custom Build design specialists, AC Architects.
Initial research into local need will be carried out via a survey by Custom Build Homes, offered to all for those who have registered their interest in building in the Wigan area. The survey consists of questions relating to the housing needs of locals, including the type and size of homes most required, as well as accessibility and budget needs.
