Reserved Matters Application

Dowbridge, Kirkham

Story Homes has submitted a reserved matters planning application for 170 homes on land at Brook Farm in Dowbridge, Kirkham. The site would create a sustainable development providing the local community with a range of high quality, high specification homes. The proposal would also make an important contribution to Fylde Borough Council housing supply.

Working in partnership with Hollins Strategic Land, we are seeking reserved matters planning for 170 new high quality homes on the site with associated infrastructure, following the outline planning consent granted earlier this year. We are proposing a development of one, two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, of those, 30% will be affordable homes, which will help the local authority meet its housing target.

Consultation details:

We consulted with stakeholders and the community between 6 October to 20 October 2017.

Meeting housing needs

The site will provide a range of family accommodation, with a mix of 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5-bedroom homes, that will help to meet local housing needs, including the provision of new affordable homes within the development.

Local economy

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

Affordable homes

Our proposals will provide up to 30% affordable housing that will be allocated for use by people with a local connection to the area. The affordable homes are anticipated to be a mixture of 2 and 3-bedroom properties
