Burton Road, Kendal


Status: Pre-submission

Application Type: Outline planning application


Story Homes is bringing forward plans to help address the local housing shortage in Kendal, by delivering a mix of housing that reflects local needs, on land identified as a ‘Broad Location’ for growth within the South Lakeland Local Plan (2013). The plans will deliver up to 340 homes at Burton Road in a variety of styles and sizes, with 35% of the properties made available as affordable. This range of property types and sizes will be attractive to first-time buyers, growing families who need more space, as well as those looking to downsize. Set within landscaped grounds and green open space, this high-quality and sustainable neighbourhood has been designed to respect local heritage assets and enhance local biodiversity. Full details on the Burton Road proposals can be found here.


  • The site will provide up to 340 high-quality homes, varying from 1–5-bedroom properties, ideal for first time buyers, growing families, or those looking to downsize in their later years. 35% of the properties will be classed as affordable.
  • New community space will be provided, including a large new park comprised of open green space and children play areas. There will also be a network of new footpaths and cycle paths and the provision of open spaces with areas for play, relaxation and wellbeing.
  • The project will create approximately 90 long-term new jobs with the delivery of new commercial units which will help boost the local economy. An additional 60 jobs created during the construction phase of the project.
