In what has been described as a ‘record land deal’ for the north of England, homes will be delivered by both Countryside and Vistry’s house building business in a joint venture with Torus.
Countryside will deliver 595 affordable homes in partnership with Torus, as well as 595 homes available on the open market.
The affordable homes will offer a mixture of shared ownership and affordable rent.
The completed development will include significant public realm open space, new sports pitches and the creation of a high-quality residential environment.
Stephen Teagle, Chief Executive of Countryside Partnerships, said: “Our team has done a great job working with key partners to secure this land.
“We will be providing new homes across all tenures, creating a place with enduring quality. Peel Hall has been one of the most sought-after sites in the North West and it is fantastic that through our Partnerships and Housebuilding businesses we will be delivering much-needed new homes for the local community.
This purchase will help underpin our strategic growth plans for the coming years and through our partnership approach, working alongside Torus, we will accelerate the delivery of housing and the creation of places people love.”
Work on site is scheduled to start in mid-2025 once full planning permission is secured.
