Planning application submitted for new homes at Halton in Lancaster

August 2017

Plans have been submitted for a development of new homes on land south of Low Road in Halton, Lancaster, following public consultation in June 2017.

We are seeking detailed planning for 87 homes on the site with associated infrastructure. Our proposals would create a sustainable and integrated development that would make an important contribution to the district’s housing supply. This follows Lancaster City Council’s decision to grant outline consent for up to 90 units on this site in May 2017.

As part of the development Story Homes will be providing £16,000 towards the improvement of playing fields at Halton Community Centre and around £280,000 towards provision of primary school places in the village.

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

Development planner Martin Nugent said: “We are seeking detailed planning consent for a new development of 87 homes on land south of Low Road, Halton. This follows outline planning being granted earlier this year and a further public consultation in June with the local community.

“We are renowned for designing high quality homes throughout the North West and for our striking street scenes on our developments. In the design of our proposal we have paid careful attention to the local area’s different forms of development, architecture, appearance and material and these will be highly visible when travelling around the development creating a unique sense of space. Wherever possible, we will use local materials on the properties and elsewhere on the site too.”

Lancaster Council Council has indentified 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.

A decision on the outline planning is expected in Autumn 2017.
