Consultation underway for new homes in Elswick

February 2018

Story Homes is proposing to submit a reserved matters planning application for 50 high quality new homes off Mill Lane in Elswick.

The development will provide a range of much needed high quality and high specification terraced, semi-detached and detached family homes.

We are consulting with key stakeholders and residents adjacent to this site on their proposals for new houses, before submitting a reserved matters planning application to Fylde Borough Council in March 2018.

The site was granted outline planning consent for 50 dwellings in November 2017. Story Homes is proposing a development of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, of those, 30% will be affordable homes, which will help the local authority meet its housing target.
The plans also include open space which would be enjoyed by the whole community.

The development will provide opportunities for local contractors as well as benefits for local supply chains. Employment opportunities would be created both directly through Story Homes and indirectly through the knock on effect for local businesses.

Development planner Siobhan Sweeney said: “The consultation is an opportunity for the residents of Elswick to comment and provide feedback on our plans. The site has been granted outline planning for 50 dwellings and we hope to deliver the best possible development here.

“We believe that 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.”

Following the consultation, which includes a letter drop to the local area, we will submit a reserved matters planning application to Fylde Borough Council in Spring 2018. It is hoped that the council will approve the development on the site.
