DESIGNS for 150 homes at a controversial development have been revealed, showing off modern interiors at the former farm.

Plans for homes at the former Roscoe's Farm site in Westhoughton have been unveiled by developers Northstone — a branch of Peel L&P.

Construction has started on 19 of the two, three and four-bedroom homes off Bolton Road, with a further 131 homes awaiting planning approval after an application was sent to Bolton Council in July.

On Monday, the developers published new designs and a 360 degree virtual tour, revealing how the neighbourhood will look when complete, with the first phase of homes expected to be finished by April 2020 and people moving in the autumn.

The computer generated visuals give an immersive look at Northstone’s first scheme proposed for Westhoughton, which has been named Roscoe’s, with street views and options to walk around the development and step inside the homes.

The interiors feature fully-furnished modern hallways, dining rooms and living rooms.

The homes have wrought controversy in Westhoughton, with plans for more than one hundred houses by various developers, including Miller Homes and Jones Homes, in the pipeline for five years.

The site was purchased by Northstone and ground finally broken in May, just before planning permission first granted in 2015 ran out for the land.

After builders arrived, Westhoughton councillors reiterated concerns for the area, citing lack of infrastructure and fears for wildlife.

But the developers say the homes have been designed with the environment in mind, working with "energy saving technology to significantly reduce residents’ energy bills".

The new designs also "show a pedestrian-led scheme to help reduce traffic speeds with public spaces throughout to create safer places for children to play", according to Northstone.

Richard O’Brien, Design Director at Northstone, part of Peel L&P, said: “Our passion is to create stylish and exceptional places led by design and sustainability to help improve people’s lives and we hope these new visuals will help to really show people the benefits of living in a Northstone home.”
