Detailed Planning Application

Brigsteer Road, Kendal

In February 2016 the Planning Inspectorate allowed Story Homes’ planning appeal and granted permission for our detailed proposals to build 34 high quality new homes on this site. Our 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 terraced, semi detached and detached dwellings, and 12 of these new homes be affordable.
