Housing crisis continues to eat industrial land

Housing crisis continues to eat industrial land

A 183,500 sq ft former industrial site in Wigan is to be redeveloped for residential use, as the housing crisis continues to eat industrial land.

The former Hovis site at Cale Lane, Wigan, is to be sold to Taylor Wimpey. Work on a 149-unit residential development will begin this autumn.

The site, in the Aspull neighbourhood, is already surrounded by residential properties.
