New Homes Underway at Worsley Mesnes, Wigan

Work is officially underway to bring 169 new homes to Worsley Mesnes.

The development will provide two, three and four-bedroom homes, for sale and affordable rent, in partnership with Keepmoat and Jigsaw Homes Group.

To be known as ‘The Seasons’, the development will create new shops and green open spaces, and all the homes will include enhanced insulation as well as energy-efficient designs for a lifetime, to help keep energy bills as low as possible.

Maria Runaghan, Assistant Director of Development at Jigsaw Homes said: “We are very pleased that the development at Worsley Mesnes has now started on site. By working in partnership with Keepmoat and Wigan Council, we can deliver much-needed affordable housing to Wigan. Not only will these homes be energy efficient and cheaper for our residents to run but they will also help us to drive regeneration in the surrounding area.”

Gareth Roberts, Regional Managing Director at Keepmoat said: “We are extremely excited to have commenced construction at Worsley Mesnes and the delivery of much-needed new homes.

“We’re working closely with Wigan Council to redevelop the area to provide an opportunity for the region’s growth. The new homes at The Seasons have been designed to create a great place for people to live and work, for both local residents as well as those new to the area.”

All new homes will feature dual control heating to regulate the temperature both upstairs and downstairs, and some properties will have advanced energy saving features, including innovative energy-efficient boilers, the highest standard of insulation and high-performance double-glazing windows.

Councillor Susan Gambles, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Housing, said: “It was great to be on site for the ‘first spade in the ground’ on this exciting redevelopment.

“These works in Worsley Mesnes will reinvigorate the area by building on currently derelict land, building much needed new homes in our borough including affordable homes, and improving the services to the community which will hopefully thrive with new shops and green spaces.”

The development is expected to complete in 2026.
