The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and Wigan Council have named Taylor Wimpey as preferred bidder for a big mixed-use scheme near Wigan. The 474-house regeneration project at the former Bickershaw South colliery will run for over eight years.

Taylor Wimpey’s Manchester office will also oversee construction of a community building, café, shops and the completion of the 40-berth marina beside the canal bordering the site. Planning permission is expected in the autumn with the completion of the first homes due next summer.
