Story Homes has put forward plans for the development of new homes in the village of Hambleton in Lancashire.
The business is proposing to build 51 high quality homes on land east of Carr Lane following consultation with the local community and council.
The new homes will comprise a mix of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom detached and semi-detached houses. This includes provision for 30% affordable housing in a combination of 2 bed terrace houses, and 2 and 3 bed semi-detached homes.
The majority of these will be available to rent, while a small number will be available to purchase on the open market at a discounted rate.
Story Homes planner David Hayward says: “Our proposed development will help the local authority meet its required housing numbers for the area. The land forms one of seven ‘Rural Local Service Centres’ within the Emerging Wyre Core Strategy and the homes will contribute towards Wyre Borough Council’s emerging housing requirement for a minimum of 5,470 net additional new dwellings during the period 2003 to 2028.
“The development will also help stimulate the local economy, creating a number of direct and indirect jobs. We have a policy of using local sub contractors and businesses from the local supply chain wherever we can.”
Financial contributions will be made by Story Homes to fund extra school places where required, while the district as a whole is expected to benefit by £362,000 over a six-year period thanks to the New Homes Bonus that will be used to improve existing and new services in the area.
