ON BEHALF OF RECEIVERS: Land with approximate site area of 1.45 acres (0.59 hectares) with development potential subject to obtaining the necessary consents


The site provides a flat and irregularly shaped parcel of land approximately 1.45 acres (0.59 hectares) , enclosed to three sides by a brick wall. The site was formerly the home of York Mill, a local textile mill, which was demolished some years ago and now provides a cleared parcel of land suitable for development. Current access is from York Street, via a gated entrance. Livesey Street runs along its northern boundary and Back Lord Street to the southern boundary. A small part of York Mill remains (outside of the demise) to the eastern boundary of the site.

The site is considered suitable for a residential development scheme, subject to obtaining the necessary planning and other consents. The site has historic planning permission for housing and a study by planning consultants suggests that the options for future residential planning are encouraging. This is included within the legal pack for information purposes only and interested parties should rely on their own enquiries and consult direct with the Local Planning Office.


The site is located in Rishton, a town in the Hyndburn district of Lancashire, around 2 miles west of Clayton-le Moors, 4 miles north east of Blackburn and 3.8 miles north west of Accrington. The area is located close to the M65, which provides excellent road links to the east and west, as well as to the M66 and M61.

Accessed off both York Street and Livesey Street, the site is situated in an area surrounded by late 19th century terraced housing and within 0.2 miles of Rishton centre, which provides a range of local shops, restaurants, pubs, cafes and other amenities and Blackburn is the closest large town with a wide variety of services, amenities and leisure uses. The site is also well located for excellent schools, including The Hyndburn Academy on the adjacent street.
