The site extends to 16.56 acres in total and has a single access point from the A674 Millennium Way, access has been approved as a reserved matter.

The land is greenfield and has only previously been used for agricultural purposes. The land rises to the east up toward Blackburn Road, where the boundary is formed by high quality, low density housing on the opposite side of Blackburn Road. To the north of the site is a large residential farmhouse and outbuildings which sits outside the boundary of the site.

A series of further fields adjoin the southern boundary of the site, these are the subject of a separate outline application for 100 dwellings but sit outside of the land offered for sale. To the west is Millennium Way and then open countryside.

The land is located off the A674 Millennium Way and whilst it sits as a self-contained development parcel, it is part of a proposed wider mixed use development at Botany Bay.

Junction 8 of the M61 provides quick and easy access to the regional and national motorway network via the M6 and M60 and therefore offers easy commuting to Manchester, Bolton or Preston by car.

The land has good public transport links in the form of regular bus services which pass the site and via Chorley rail station which links Manchester City Centre with Chorley with onward services to Preston, Carlisle and the Lake District.
