We are holding a public exhibition on proposals for the regeneration and redevelopment of the former Camelot theme park site, to the south west of Chorley, prior to putting in an outline planning application in Spring 2017.
The plans are for up to 195 homes and an area for employment use which could deliver around 80 jobs. The employment area will be a maximum of 3,000sqm and will include an office and small-scale start-up office/workshops units. These will be situated next to the existing employment units and the car park adjacent to the site entrance. The development would also deliver improved walking and cycling paths and open green space
Drop-in exhibitions are being held on:
- Thursday 16 March from 4.00pm to 7.00pm at Charnock Richard Football Club, Charter Lane, PR7 5LZ
- Saturday 18 March from 11.00am to 2.00pm at Heskin Village Hall, Wood Lane, PR7 5NS
David O’Reilly, Land and Planning Director for Story Homes said: “Over the last 18 months we have been working hard to create a smaller scheme for the Camelot site that responds to the comments we received from the local community during our previous application.
“We held a number of public consultations in 2016 and we have committed to not going higher than 200 homes across the site and we are now presenting our final outline proposals before we submit our outline planning application to Chorley council in Spring 2017.
“The former Camelot theme park is in desperate need of regeneration and we want to replace this eyesore with a high quality scheme that local residents and businesses will be proud of.”
Our original planning application for 420 houses was rejected by Chorley Borough Council in winter 2014. We made the decision not to appeal the refusal and instead committed to working closely with ward and parish Councillors and the wider community to develop revised proposals that meet the aspirations of local residents and stakeholders.
