The local community in Clitheroe is being consulted about a proposed development of new executive homes in the town.
Housebuilder Story Homes is proposing to build up to 130 new high quality homes on the land off Henthorn Road. The land in question is adjacent to other new development in the area and already benefits from outline planning approval, agreeing to the principal of building on the site.
The homes will support the local authority to meet its required housing numbers for the area and will also deliver up to 30% of affordable homes, designated for local people.
Development will bring with it other key benefits including the creation of hundreds of jobs directly and indirectly through the use of local sub-contractors and the supply chain. Financial contributions for education will be made where required and a package of improvements to footpaths, cycle paths and highways will be tied into a travel plan for the area.
Story Homes is a Carlisle based family grown business with more than 27 years of experience in developing land and communities, renowned in Cumbria, The North East and Lancashire for building high quality and high specification homes.
A planning application is due to be submitted to the local authority in May 2015 and we are seeking comments and feedback to help us shape our final plans before the submission is made.
