Planning application submitted for new homes in Hornby

October 2018

Plans have been submitted for a development of new homes and a new medical centre on land off Melling Road in Hornby, Lancaster.

Story Homes is applying for planning permission to build 76 news homes and a new surgery on the site, including the construction of a new roundabout to the junction of Melling Road and Fleet Lane. Their proposals would create a sustainable and integrated development that would make an important contribution to the city’s housing supply.

The development will provide high quality and high specification apartments, terraced, semi-detached and detached family homes, and will include 40% affordable homes. The development will consist of one, two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, which will help meet the wide range of needs in Lancaster.

Planning Manager Siobhan Sweeney said: “We have submitted a hybrid planning application for a new development of 76 homes and a medical practice off Melling Road in Hornby. A hybrid application means that the housing element is a full planning application and the medical centre is an outline planning application.

“Story Homes is renowned for designing high quality homes throughout the North West and for striking street scenes on our developments. In the design of our proposal we have paid careful attention to the local areaarchitecture, appearance and materials and these will be highly visible when travelling around the development creating a unique sense of space.”

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

A decision on the planning application is expected in Winter 2018.
