Green light for new homes in Grimsargh

April 2019

We have successfully secured the backing of Preston city council with planning permission approved for 147 new homes in Grimsargh, Preston.

Reserved matters planning permission was granted this week by Preston council’s planning committee for the homes on land off Preston Road. This follows outline planning being granted in May 2016 and public consultation in September 2018 with the local community and the Parish Council.

This is our third development in Preston and it includes a mix of one to five-bedroom properties across a variety of housetypes including 35% affordable housing.

As part of the development, Story Homes will contribute around £300,000 towards education as well as providing an onsite equipped play area for use by the wider community. The scheme will also generate a Community Infrastructure Levy payment of circa £1.2m which the council can use to fund infrastructure projects which support local communities.

Story Homes’ planning manager, Siobhan Sweeney said: “We are delighted to have received the backing of Preston City Council in respect of our planned development of 147 new homes in Grimsargh.

“We have worked closely with the council to design a scheme that is not only high-quality, but will also complement the existing character of Grimsargh.

“Our proposals will also provide local contractors with opportunities for work, and there will be knock on benefits for local supply chains,businesses and services.”

We anticipate starting work on site from Summer 2019 with the first homes due to complete in Spring 2020.
