£400,000 invested into Lowton from Redrow development

More than £400,000 will be handed over to the Lowton community as a result of Redrow’s Oakwoods Fields development.

To coincide with the recent 25th property completion at Oakwood Fields, almost 50% of the community contributions from the developer have now been paid to Wigan Council.

These include more than £90,000 for secondary school places in the Lowton east ward and around £57,000 towards play space at Pennington Flash Country Park. A further £10,000 has been paid towards the play area on Pond Street.

In total, Redrow is building 117 new homes in Lowton, at the edge of the village between Wigan and Warrington.

Oakwood Fields offers a mix of three and four-bedroom homes from Redrow’s award-winning Heritage Collection, that is praised for its complementary blend of old and new, with traditional exteriors leading into bright and contemporary open plan spaces.

Redrow Lancashire’s sales director Sian Pitt said: “While we are building homes in Lowton, we are also contributing towards local area improvements too through our S106 community contributions. We have also donated £3,000 in voluntary community contributions and helped local community groups such as a local allotments association and a charity that rescues and rehabilitates animals.

“Wherever Redrow builds, we always aim to help existing communities to thrive, as well as creating brand new communities in great locations.”

The remaining contributions will be made once the 66th completion takes place.

Within the development itself, Redrow is providing areas of open space and new footpaths for walking and cycling to connect residents to the open land to the north and east, as well as the playing fields to the south.

An existing watercourse will be enhanced to create new wildlife habitats and provide an attractive landscaped feature running through the site, with a new footbridge being built as part of the footpath network.

We have previously reported that Redrow have also supported several local community groups, including Golborne Allotments, St Mary’s Community Hall and Lowton Residents Association.
