We are seeking detailed planning permission for the re-plan of phase two of the development which will deliver 195 homes in this phase, bringing the total to 329 homes. As part of this new phase, Story Homes will be launching 15 new house type designs including a mixture of two, three, four and five-bedroom properties as part of ‘The Story Collection’.
The Story Collection provides a range of family homes and incorporates the best of a Story home in terms of design and elevations to retain the our unique street scenes, and internal layouts to offer modern, open plan living spaces.
D’Urton Manor is one of 11 key sites that were identified as part of the 10 year City Deal signed by Preston, South Ribble and Lancashire Councils in 2013. The development will provide a range of much needed high quality homes ranging from one to five-bedroom homes. The proposed scheme will make a significant contribution towards Preston City council’s housing requirement.
Land Manager Martin Nugent said: “Story Homes has submitted a detailed planning application for phase two of our D’Urton Manor development, in Fulwood.
“Our application details how the development has been replanned to deliver 195 homes in this phase, which will bring the total development to 329 new homes.
As part of this new phase, Story Homes will be launching 15 new house type designs including a mixture of two, three, four and five-bedroom properties as part of ‘The Story Collection’.
“The 329 family homes, which includes 45 affordable homes is a key development in the area. The development will also provide public open space including a children’s play area, a care facility, enhanced ecological habitat areas and a much needed new link road between Eastway and D’Urton Lane. It is situated in a great location on the edge of the city and close to the M6 and M55 so is perfect for commuting.
“We are renowned for our striking and unique street scenes and our development will complement the existing area.”
The development will help deliver the original vision for the Eastway development. Story Homes will also make financial contributions towards transport links including improvements to footpaths, cycle paths, highways and public transport.
The scheme will have benefits for the local economy during the construction phase as a result of direct and indirect employment opportunities through the sub-contractor and supply chains, as well as an increased demand for local services when the new houses are occupied.
We anticipate a decision in winter 2019.
