MP visits Barrowford development

Andrew Stephenson, the MP for Pendle, has visited the Keld development in Barrowford to discover more about how the company behind it is supporting the local community and paving a way for a new style of luxury living in the borough.

The new housing scheme, by Northstone, will comprise 239 two-, three- and four-bedroom homes once complete and includes a range of innovative and sustainable solutions and initiatives.

Mr Stephenson undertook a tour of the scheme, hosted by Craig Nutter (Operations Director) and Richard O’Brien (Design Director), where he learnt more about Northstone’s plans for the site and beyond.

Northstone was named ‘Housebuilder of the Year’ in the recent Insider North West Residential Property Awards 2023, with judges saying it “has achieved something others should aspire to” and that they “admired Northstone’s approach which elevates it beyond mainstream housebuilders”.

Complete with pedestrian-led streets, flexible ground floor layouts, large gardens and a number of energy efficiency measures, each of the homes at Keld have been intuitively planned with a ‘people first’ approach.

Mr Stephenson said, “I was pleased to be invited by Northstone to see their new Keld development in Barrowford, and to learn more about their ideas around how it can add to the town’s existing community.

“Developers should aim to be more than housebuilders and I was reassured to know Northstone sees its role as building a neighbourhood and not just a new housing estate.”

Craig Nutter, Operations Director at Northstone, said: “It’s wonderful that Mr Stephenson took time from his very busy schedule to come and see all the added-value activity we’re doing at Keld over and above just building homes.  

“As a relatively young developer committed to building a more neighbourly world, we do our utmost to deliver a community, rather than just properties, which complement the area and enable us to leave a legacy for current and future residents. 

“In a post-Covid era, homebuyers want more than just bricks and mortar and the range of ongoing and forthcoming initiatives we’ve got underway at Keld do and will help contribute towards it being a great place to live.”

Investing finances and resources into the communities within which it builds, Northstone is the only housebuilder to partner with the Wildlife Trust. The company has also donated towards a new running track at Barrowford St Thomas’ C.E. Primary School as well as supporting local events such as the Pendle Powerfest.

Situated just off Barrowford Road, nearby to Nelson and Colne College and Victoria Park, Keld, defined as a deep, smooth, still part of a river, comprises two-, three- and four-bedroom homes with a three-bedroom home in the latest phase released priced from £269,950.
