Morris Homes plans to build the land north of Radcliffe Road, Darcy Lever. Bolton.

A design and access statement submitted to support the outline planning permission details the development site.

He states: “The proposed plan includes new wildlife ponds, sustainable urban drainage ponds, trees and 115 homes.

fences and bike and pedestrian paths.

“The homes will be a mix of one to four bedroom, two-story dwellings in barn, semi-detached and detached types.

“The northern edge of the site is a densely vegetated strip of land consisting of a string of mature trees.

“The western half is the current location of a RV and RV storage park with a large gravel surface area surrounded by metal fencing.

“While the eastern half is an open, unmanaged undulating horse field, the center of the site is a trunk of dense vegetation and trees surrounding a pond.”

The report says the location takes advantage of existing access to Radcliffe Road and is a 20-minute walk from local shops and Breightmet retail park, and a 20-minute bike ride from Bolton centre.

Morris Homes said the proposed layout design was designed to provide a structure that promotes ‘good urban design qualities’.

The statement said: “It will have an orderly network of streets with clear hierarchies running most parallel and perpendicular to Radcliffe Road.

an important avenue in the local hierarchy.

“This is for both ease of movement in and around the diagram and to simplify movement in terms of readability and understanding where you are within the diagram.”

Recommended vehicle access will be from a relocated roundabout off Radcliffe Road.

The report states that under Bolton Council’s current code of practice, a maximum of 50 homes can be serviced from a single access point, thus requiring an emergency access point.

This emergency access will connect from Radcliffe Road east of the proposed site access and will connect to internal roads.

Emergency vehicle connection will be controlled with detachable poles so that it is not used by non-emergency vehicles.

Planners at Bolton Council will consider the proposals in the coming weeks.
