Outline planning permission granted for homes in Elswick

December 2017

We have successfully secured outline planning permission for 50 new homes in Elswick.

We were granted outline permission on 28 November 2017, by the Planning Inspectorate for the homes on land north of Mill Lane.

The site will provide a range of high quality and high specification terraced, semi-detached and detached family homes, and will include 30% affordable homes.

Development planner Siobhan Sweeney said: “We are delighted with the Planning Inspectorate’s decision to grant outline planning permission for 50 new homes in Elswick.

“The scheme has been extremely well thought out and is not only high-quality, but will also complement the existing character of the village and provide open space for the use of the whole community. The homes will also help boost the supply of much needed new homes and make a contribution towards the supply of affordable housing in the Fylde.

“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.”

The plans will help the local authority address the under-delivery of housing in the Fylde by boosting the supply. It would also offer up to 30% affordable housing to address the needs in the borough.

The plans also include open space which would be enjoyed by the whole community.

The development will provide opportunities for local contractors as well as benefits for local supply chains. Employment opportunities would be created both directly through Story Homes and indirectly through the knock on effect for local businesses.

View our proposals here and full details of the application can be viewed at Fylde Borough Council using the application reference 17/0247.

We are preparing a Reserved Matters Application for this site and more details will be made available over the coming months.
