Consultation underway for new homes in Poulton-Le-Fylde

April 2019

Story Homes is proposing to submit a full planning application for 186 high quality new homes on land at Blackpool Road, Poulton-le-Fylde.

We will be consulting with key stakeholders and residents adjacent to this site, on their proposals for new homes, prior to submitting a full planning application to Wyre Council in Summer 2019.

We are proposing a development of one, two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, of which 30% will be affordable homes, helping the local authority meet its housing target.

The site forms part of a wider allocation for residential development in the adopted Wyre Local Plan, which is identified as a sustainable location for around 300 new homes. The site will also provide a parcel of land for the development of a new primary school.

The scheme 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.

Land Manager Dan Chant said: “The consultation is an opportunity for the residents adjacent to the site to comment and provide feedback on our plans. At Story Homes we always strive to deliver the best possible development through thoughtful planning and design.

“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.

Following the consultation, which included a letter drop to the local area, Story Homes plans to submit a full planning application to Wyre Borough Council in Summer 2019.
