Residents and stakeholders came together on Tuesday 22 November from 3-7 pm in Scotby village hall, to view and comment on proposed plans to build new homes on land in the village of Scotby.
The event was very well attended with over 110 people taking the time to view the proposed plans, ask questions and find out more about the proposed development. This land has been allocated in the adopted Carlisle District Local Plan 2015 – 2030 and was deemed a sustainable location for up to 90 dwellings by the independent examiner.
We have has started to prepare detailed proposals to build a maximum of 90 high quality new homes on this site located on the north eastern edge of the village, south of the A69 to be accessed from Scotby Road.
Proposals would create a sustainable and integrated development that would make an important contribution to the district’s housing supply. The proposed development would deliver a mix of dwellings, and some of these new homes are likely to be affordable.
Story Homes Planner, David Hayward said: “We’re pleased it was such a busy event, as its really important people are informed and help shape plans. We have lots consultation responses to review and incorporate into our proposals where possible.”
“For those that couldn’t make the event, the consultation boards are on our website and the consultation period is open until Tuesday 6 December. Residents are invited respond online or by post.”
Following the consultation, all responses will be reviewed and where possible incorporated into the proposed development. For further details visit the planning section.
It is anticipated that the planning application will be submitted in summer 2017.
