Planning application submitted for new homes in Barton, Preston

October 2020

Plans have been submitted for a development of new homes on land off Jepps Lane in Barton, Preston, following public consultation in May 2019.

We are seeking outline planning permission for 125 homes on the site. The development will provide a range of much needed high quality homes ranging from one to five-bedroom homes. Up to 35% of the homes are likely to be affordable. The proposed scheme will make a significant contribution towards Preston City council’s housing requirement.

As part of the development, Story Homes will contribute around £900,000 in community infrastructure levy payments with any further contributions to be determined during the course of the planning application.

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.

Planning Manager Siobhan Sweeney, said: “We are seeking outline planning consent for a new development of 125 homes on land off Jepps Lane in Barton, Preston. This follows public consultation in May 2019 with local residents.

“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 use of material and this will be highly visible when travelling around the development.”

We anticipate a decision early in the new year.
