Planning approved for former mill site in Burnley

Muller Property Group has been granted planning permission on a 6.5 acre brownfield site in Burnley.

The site, formally home to Lodge Mill, which was demolished in 2015, sits on the Leeds Liverpool Canal, close to Reedley Marina.

Allocated for housing in the Burnley Local Plan, Muller now has approval to deliver 73 new properties on the site.  This will include 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom mews, semi and detached houses.

The mature, tree-lined site is accessed directly off Barden Lane and benefits from canal frontage. The Muller proposal includes the creation of a green corridor along the canal with several properties fronting directly onto the water.

Colin Muller, chief executive at Muller Property Group said, “We are delighted to have secured planning for this well-located site to deliver a high-quality scheme of much-needed new homes for the local area.  This brownfield site can now be transformed into a new community from where residents can easily stroll into Burnley town centre.”
