Exhibition of plans for former Camelot theme park

March 2017

We held a busy exhibition for proposed homes at the former Camelot theme park in Chorley on 16 and 18 March 2017, for residents and stakeholders to view and comment on proposed plans to build new homes.

The event was very well attended with more than 200 people taking the time to view the proposed outline plans, ask questions and find out more about the proposed development.

Story Homes has prepared an outline planning application to build up to 195 high quality new 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 adjacent 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

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 dwellings, and some of these new homes are likely to be affordable.

Story Homes Land and Planning Director David O’Reilly said: “We’re pleased it was such a busy event. We have held a number of consultations and exhibitions, particularly over the past 12 months as it’s really important people are informed and help shape our plans. We have lots of consultation responses to review and see if they can be incorporated into our proposals.”

“For those that couldn’t make the event, the consultation boards are on our website. Residents are invited respond online or by post.”

It is anticipated that the outline planning application will be submitted in Spring 2017.

Following the consultation, all responses will be reviewed and where possible incorporated into the proposed development. Further details on the plans are available on the planning section of the Story Homes website.
