Welcome

GLP and Barratt Homes, invite you to provide feedback on their emerging development proposals at Cowm Top, Castleton in Rochdale which will provide mix of high-quality family homes to support the sustainable community of Castleton.

GLP and Barratt Homes wish to deliver an exciting scheme which will result in significant economic, social and environmental benefits to the local area and community, helping to boost the Castleton area of Rochdale. This represents a real opportunity to widen housing choice in a suitable and sustainable location, helping to meet the Borough’s current and future housing needs on a site long identified for residential development, whilst reducing development pressure on green belt sites (as this site lies outside of the green belt).

Who are GLP/Barratt Homes?

The application will be submitted jointly by the landowners GLP Ltd and Barratt Homes. 

GLP are the landowners and have experience of bringing sites forward for development across the northwest independently and as part of joint ventures such as this.    

Barratt Homes is part of Barratt Developments and is one of the country’s leading housebuilders, creating new communities and distinctive places to live throughout Britain.  At the heart of all their developments is great design and ensuring schemes are planned to meet the needs of the local community by offering a wide ranging choice of housing sizes and styles. 

Barratt Homes has been awarded the Home Builders Federation (HBF) 5 Star Home Builder status, making them the only major national housebuilder to have reached the standard required to achieve the maximum 5 Star status for 11 years running.  This 5 Star status means that more than 90% of their customers who responded to the national customer satisfaction survey have said they would recommend Barratt.
