Planning application submitted for new homes at Hornby in Lancaster

September 2017

We have submitted plans for a development of new homes on land on Melling Road in Hornby, Lancaster, following a public consultation in June 2017.

We are seeking detailed planning for 80 homes on the site and the construction of a new roundabout to the junction of Melling Road and Fleet Lane. Our proposals will create a sustainable and integrated development that would make an important contribution to the district’s housing supply.

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

Development planner Martin Nugent said: “We are seeking detailed planning consent for a new development of 80 homes on Melling Road in Lancaster. This follows a public consultation in June with stakeholders and 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.”

A decision on the detailed planning application is expected in Winter 2017.
