Detailed Planning Application

Land North of Broughton Park, Little Broughton

In late 2016 Story Homes submitted detailed proposals to build 64 high quality new homes on this site.

Unfortunately, in May 2017 the Council took the decision to refuse the application. An appeal was submitted in September 2017, and we anticipate a decision in summer 2018.

To see view our proposals click on the Submitted Plan tab below.

Full details of the application can be viewed at www.allerdale.gov.uk using the application reference 160751.

Affordable Homes

Our proposals will provide up to 25% affordable housing that will be allocated for use by people with a local connection to the area.

Economic benefit

Our proposals will support existing local businesses and help create additional employment through new opportunities for local sub-contractors and the supply chain.


Inclusion of landscape buffers and new leisure walking routes through the site with offsite public footpath upgrades

Local Schools

Where there is a proven shortfall in available places we are proposing to make a financial contribution to fund additional places as required as a result of our proposals.

Public open space

Our proposals will include the creation of new open space for the benefit of local people and new residents alike.

Meeting housing needs

The sire will provide a range of family homes that will help to meet local housing needs, including the provision of new affordable homes within the development.

About Us

We are a family grown business with 30 years of experience in developing land and communities. Since 1987, we have grown into one of the most respected and well-known companies in the north of England thanks to our designs, our ability to sensitively plan and build developments that retain the character and style of an area, our customer service and our attention to detail.

This success is underpinned by the quality and high specification of our homes, the way our developments enhance locations, and ultimately our determination to understand the needs of the communities where we build.

  • We employ local people
