Building work has begun on a £1.5 million housing development on the site of a former mill in Barrowford.
Some 14 semi-detached town houses are being built on land off Lower Clough Street by Manchester-based construction firm Harbur Construction, on behalf of Rainbow Homes.
The former Caldervale Mill, which was previously on the site, was demolished to make way for a previous scheme which then stalled. Rainbow Homes acquired the site and the planning permission and recommenced building.
The three bedroom, four storey properties, which were designed by architects Hurd Rolland Partnership, are now available for sale through Petty’s estate agents at the Barrowford office.
Phil Newton, business development manager at Harbur Construction, said: “This scheme will provide some much-needed family homes for this rural Pendle village and will transform this former brownfield site, which was fast becoming an eyesore for nearby residents.
“This is our first partnership with Rainbow Homes, and we look forward to working together on this scheme and in the future.”
Andrew Aindow, sales manager of Rainbow Homes, said: “We have already had a lot of interest from families and professionals alike looking to reserve plots off plan because of the design, the great access to the motorway network and all the amenities Barrowford, Colne and Nelson have to offer”.
The development is due to be completed by March next year.
