New Housing For Hyndburn
An anti-social hotspot has been designated for the building of 50 new homes in Hyndburn.
The land on Hopwood Street which is an anti-social hotspot will help to alleviate the housing crisis in Accrington.
Councillor Munsif Dad has said “he welcomes the plans at the site which has been plagued by anti-social behaviour and fly tipping”.
Councillor Diane Fielding has also said that new houses would be welcomed with open arms.
The housing shortage is bad in Accrington and any plans to change this would be welcomed.
The Hopwood Street land has been vacant for many years and has been an open overgrown field which has encouraged fly tipping and bad behaviour from people just hanging around.
The site had been earmarked in 1988 for residential homes but no plans were submitted.
Plans have been submitted by “The Intelligent Design Centre”.
The plans state they will make the best use of the outstanding views over Accrington and beyond.
The building of 50 homes of two, three and four bedrooms will give a boost to employment opportunities in the area.
The houses are to be built from stone, render and slate which would be in keeping with other properties which have recently been constructed in Blackburn Road.
“Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire says it is always good to see vacant, derelict land put to good use and to remove an eyesore especially on a busy route into the town”.
