Housing Infrastructure Fund
A £12 million Housing Infrastructure Fund pot from Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) will be used to remediate land and create a new road across the £262m Rivington Chase development which will enable new homes to be built more quickly. The road will provide the main access to vehicles for Rivington Chase and will link the planned 1,700-home site with Middlebrook retail park, Horwich Parkway railway station and Junction 6 of the M61.
Given the heritage of the site on the former Horwich Loco Works, the development team is working with local residents and heritage groups to preserve and present Horwich’s history in an engaging way.
