The developer has submitted planning proposals to construct 249 homes on a 15.7-acre site, including 175 private sale properties and 74 affordable homes, as part of a phased development. Of the 74 affordable homes, 52 will be for rent and 22 will be for shared ownership. 

The broader 80-acre strategic site, allocated for mixed-use, including 1,400 dwellings, is part of the Sefton local plan and Maghull Neighbourhood plan and is part-owned by Anwyl Homes, and two other private landowners.

In October 2021, Sefton Borough Council granted outline planning permission for 855 homes with a local centre, an over 55s development, and more than 18 acres of public open space at the 80-acre site.

Planning permission for another 841-home development to the north of Poverty Lane in Maghull, was granted in February 2021, and is currently under construction. 

Subject to planning, Anwyl could start work on the first two phases of the development in summer 2024, with the first properties expected to be released for sale in 2025.

A registered provider, who will deliver the affordable housing element of the scheme, is expected to be confirmed in early 2024.
