Consultation to discuss plans for new homes in Seaton

January 2016

Story Homes will consult with the public next week on proposed plans to bring new homes to the village of Seaton, Workington.

The award-winning housebuilder is proposing to submit a full planning application to build approximately 80 houses on the north east edge of Seaton.

Proposed plans include a mixture of family housing including up to 20% affordable housing for local people which will support the local authority to meet its required housing numbers for the area.

The development will inevitably bring economic benefits to the area during the construction phase, including the creation of jobs for local sub-contractors and knock on support for local businesses and supply chains.

Story Homes Planner, Adam McNally said: “This consultation event is an opportunity for residents from the local area to understand the proposals and come forward with comments to help shape plans for the development.

“Story Homes builds beautifully finished, high-quality and high specification homes which are built using local materials and labour where possible and will create a community which will integrate well within the already thriving village of Seaton.”

Story Homes is well known in Cumbria as a builder of aspirational family homes, having been established in the county for nearly 30 years. Recent completed sites such as Whins Farm Close at High Harrington and Mable Wood at Great Clifton have already enhanced communities in West Cumbria. Current developments; Cairns Chase in Workington, St Mungo’s Close in Dearham and three other sites in Whitehaven are proving to be very popular with a range of buyers.

The public consultation event will take place on Thursday 28 January between 3pm and 7.45pm at Seaton Village (Welfare) Hall, Causeway Road, Seaton, CA14 1PN.

Following the consultation event, all responses will be reviewed and where possible incorporated into the proposed development.
