The multi-million transformation of this historic neighbourhood is complete.
The area adjoining the Leeds and Liverpool Canal covers the Whitefield Conservation Area, with its Grade II listed St Mary’s Church, former cotton mills and rows of Victorian terraced housing.
PEARL acted as contractor to Pendle Council to deliver a £9 million comprehensive housing refurbishment programme within the Whitefield Phase 1 area. This formed a major part of the Council’s ambitious heritage led regeneration initiative in Whitefield, which started in 2005.
The programme was completed in 2015. Over the 10 year period, PEARL has refurbished 80 terraced houses to conservation specifications; including several ‘two into one conversions’ to meet the demand for larger family homes.
Called ‘tardis terraces’ these large, bright and beautifully modernised Victorian houses make great family homes.
And with a new £9m infant and nursery school, attractive linear park with trees and seating areas and nearness to Victoria Park, canalside walks and Nelson town centre, Whitefield is a wonderful place to live and bring up a family.
The last piece in the jigsaw in Whitefield’s 10 year regeneration has been the completion of the Presbytery scheme by PEARL. This involved the refurbishment and remodelling of 18 heritage terraces and the building of 14 contemporary styled new family homes called Marsden Rise.
The scheme was delivered by PEARL for the Great Places Housing Group and was shortlisted for the prestigious 2015 Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) North West Awards. To find out more about the few remaining properties to buy (link to rightmove)
