The developer has acquired land in Warrington with planning permission for 172 homes from government body Homes England for an undisclosed sum.
Rowland Homes was granted planning permission from Warrington Council in March to build the residential scheme at Grappenhall Heys. The development will be called Astor Grange and Rowland plans to start construction work on site in early 2021.
The land is split into two parcels totalling around 20 acres, which are accessed separately off Astor Drive and Litchfield Avenue respectively.
The planned scheme also includes open space, landscaping and footpath links to adjacent green infrastructure.
The site is located south-east of Stockton Heath and adjacent to the Grappenhall Heys Walled Garden as well as its village green and woodland.
