Application submitted for new homes at Ulverston

April 2017

Plans have been submitted for a development of new homes on land at West End Nurseries in Ulverston.

We are seeking a detailed planning application for 87 homes, an area already allocated for housing by South Lakeland District Council.

The proposal includes a mix of two, three, four and five bedroom mews, semi-detached and detached homes. The type and mix of properties have been put together to reflect the local vernacular and housing needs of the area.

The development proposals will make an important contribution to the district’s housing supply, and will also provide 30 affordable homes available for local people based on their eligibility, providing a much needed boost to the affordable market in Ulverston.

Our proposals will create a sustainable and integrated development, that will have benefits for the local economy during the construction phase as a result of direct and indirect employment opportunities through the sub-contractor and supply chains, as well as an increased demand for local services when the new houses are occupied.

Development planner David Hayward said: “We are seeking detailed planning consent for a new development of 87 homes on land at West End Nurseries in Ulverston. This follows a public consultation in December 2016 with the local community.

“We are renowned for designing high quality homes throughout Cumbria and for our striking street scenes on our developments. In the design of our proposal we have paid careful attention to the local area’s different forms of development, architecture, appearance and material and these aspects will be visible when travelling around the development creating a unique sense of space.

“The land at West End Nurseries has already been allocated for residential development by South Lakeland District Council and we hope to deliver the best possible housing solution here.

“We believe that the our product is appropriate for this site due to the high quality of our houses and also our dedication to building developments which complement the local area, through thoughtful planning and design.”

Says Victoria Hunter, senior planner at HOW Planning: “We have been working closely with Story Homes to ensure this development meets all expectations and ambitions for the local area. It will create many new homes which will not only help boost the local community but also compliment the rural surroundings. We look forward to the decision which is expected later this Summer.”

A decision on the detailed planning application is expected in Summer 2017.
