Phoenix Way, Wigan

Hive Homes

Hive were instructed by Hive Homes to provide pre-application planning consultancy services and a Planning Statement for the development of a brownfield site off Phoenix Way in Wigan.  

Phoenix Way


Hive Homes is the Greater Manchester Housing Providers’ Joint Venture, funded by 10 Greater Manchester based Registered Providers (Great Places, Salix, Onward, Irwell Valley, Mossacre St Vincent’s, Bolton at Home, One Manchester, Southway, Wythenshawe and Trafford Housing Trust).


The proposed development comprises 101 residential dwellings, with 25 homes being affordable rent tenure and the remaining for market sale. The Planning Statement clearly set out the benefits of the scheme, which would deliver regeneration of a brownfield site in a sustainable location.

The former Riverside High School site is located to the west of Radcliffe town centre and has been vacant since 2015. The site, which was cleared in 2021, provided an opportunity to delivery for much needed housing development in Bury. 

Marton Estate is an 11 hectare Site situated in the Fylde-Blackpool periphery strategic location for development, which was identified in the Local Plan. The Site was allocated for mixed use development to fulfil growth objectives for the Borough. Outline planning permission had previously been granted on the Site for the development of 265 dwellings and 1.5 hectares of employment use, however development did not come forward and the permission expired before a Reserved Matters Application was submitted. Homes England subsequently acquired part of the site to help deliver much needed housing development in Fylde.


Baxters Lane is a vacant industrial site in the east of St Helens. Hive was commissioned to prepare and submit a full planning application for the development of 28 dwellings for affordable rent along with associated access, parking and landscaping.
