Detailed Planning Application

The Ridings 3b, Blackwell

On 30 August Carlisle City Council’s development control committee approved (subject to completion of a new legal agreement) our full application to increase the number of dwellings on this final phase of the development by 15 dwellings which will make the total number of dwellings on this phase to 104 and the overall scheme 333 dwellings in total.

This approval means we will be able to build our new ‘Story Collection’ house types in this final phase.

Affordable homes

The site 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 or a contribution towards provision elsewhere.

Public space

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


Where there is a proven shortfall in available places in the local primary and secondary schools, we may be required to provide a financial contribution to fund any additional places required as a result of our proposals.
