Hollinwood Homes, part of construction firm Marcus Worthington Group, has secured an approval from Blackpool Council in the UK for its £50m housing scheme in Blackpool.
Designed by UK-based architectural firm Broadway Malyan, the scheme, dubbed Foxhall Village, will be built on a 7.2ha site across two parcels of land along Rigby Road on either side of Seasiders Way, near Blackpool FC’s stadium.
The development, which will feature up to 410 new homes, will be near to the revitalised seafront of Blackpool.
The development will be split between 183 homes on the western site, across Princess Street, Seasiders Way, Rigby Road and Tyldesley Road, and 220 homes on the eastern site, which features the land formerly occupied by the Mecca and the Illuminations facility.
As per the plans, a mixture of two, three and four bedroom houses and 28 two-bedroom apartments will be built.
Plans under the scheme also include 700 car parking spaces and more than 100 visitor spaces.
Hollinwood Homes is planning to name the streets within the development after Blackpool FC’s 1953 FA Cup winning team.
Broadway Malyan associate director Tim Shennan said, "The planning green light is a milestone in the delivery of the first stage of this major new scheme, which will provide much-needed new housing."
Hollinwood Homes will now prepare a reserved matters application for the first phase of the scheme, which will feature 218 new homes after completion.
Work on the first phase is expected to commence on site in September 2013 and complete by December 2015.
The entire development is expected to take ten years to complete.
