Reserved Matters planning application submitted for new homes in Elswick, Lancashire

April 2018

We have submitted a reserved matters planning application for a development of 50 new homes on land off Mill Lane in Elswick, following public consultation in March 2018.

The development will provide a range of high quality and high specification two, three, four and five-bedroom detached and semi-detached family homes, and will include 30% affordable homes.

Proposals would create a sustainable and integrated development that would make an important contribution to the district’s housing supply.

Senior development planner Siobhan Sweeney said: “We are seeking reserved matters planning consent for a new development of 50 homes on land off Mill Lane, Elswick. This follows outline planning being granted in November 2017 and a further public consultation in March 2018 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.”

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.

We will use local sub contractors and suppliers where possible, delivering economic benefits and job creation back into the local area.
The plans also include open space which would be enjoyed by the whole community.

Proposals can be view on and full details of the application can be viewed at Fylde Borough Council.

We anticipate a decision in Summer 2018.
