Green light for new homes in Halton

April 2018

We have secured the backing from Lancaster City Council with detailed planning permission approved for 76 new homes on land off Low Road in Halton, Lancaster.

The development, which will be named Halton Grange, includes a mix of three, four and five-bedroom terraced, semi-detached and detached homes. The type and mix of properties have been designed to reflect the local vernacular and housing need, and will provide a variety of house designs to suit local needs.

Their proposals will create a sustainable and integrated development that would make an important contribution to the district’s housing supply.

We will make a financial contribution of circa £300,000 towards increasing the number of primary school places available in the local area and £16,000 towards making improvements to the playing field at Halton Community Centre.

The development will also benefit from pedestrian improvements and works to increase highway safety on Low Road and improvements to bus stops on High Road. New pedestrian links will be created between the village and the River Lune.

We will use local sub contractors and suppliers where possible, delivering economic benefits and job creation back into local area.

Land and Planning Associate Martin Nugent said: “We are delighted to have received the backing from Lancaster City Council in respect to our planned development of 76 new homes at Low Road, Halton. We are excited about the prospect of bringing forward our third development in Lancaster.

“ We have worked closely with local stakeholders and the Council to ensure the scheme has been extremely well thought out and is not only high-quality, but will also complement the existing character of the area. The development will also provide open space for the use of the whole community. The homes will boost the supply of much needed new homes in Lancaster.

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

Lancaster City council has identified Halton as a ‘sustainable rural village’ in their existing Development Plan, and as a ‘sustainable settlement’ in their emerging plan for the district. Public open space, biodiversity enhancements and boundary planting are also offered as part of an attractive and well connected proposal.

We will look to start work on site in Summer 2018 with the first homes completed in Spring 2019.
