Reserved Matters Application

Phase 2 Reserved Matters proposed planning application for residential development Land off Strawberry How, Cockermouth

In 2016 Story Homes started to prepare reserved matters proposals to build approximately 224 high quality new homes on this site, which is the second phase of the Strawberry Grange development and will provide build continuity from the first phase currently under construction.

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 some of these new homes will be affordable.

A Reserved Matters Application was submitted in April 2018 and we are expecting a decision in early 2019.
