Plans have been submitted for a development of new homes on land off Blackpool Road in Poulton-le-Fylde, following public consultation in May 2019.
We are seeking reserved matters planning for 187 homes on the site. Proposals would create a sustainable development that would make an important contribution to the housing supply.
The development will provide a range of much needed high quality and high specification one, two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, of which 30% will be affordable, helping the local authority meet its housing target.
The site forms part of a wider allocation for residential development in the adopted Wyre Local Plan, which is identified as a sustainable location for around 300 new homes. The site will also provide a parcel of land for the development of a new primary school.
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.
The development will provide opportunities for local contractors as well as benefits for local supply chains. Employment opportunities would be created both directly through Story Homes and indirectly through the knock on effect for local businesses. The house builder will use local sub contractors and suppliers where possible, delivering economic benefits and job creation back into the local area.
Story Homes’ Land Manager Dan Chant said: “We are seeking reserved matters planning consent for a new development of 187 homes on land off Blackpool Road, Poulton-le-Fylde. 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.”
Proposals can be view on www.storyhomes.co.uk and full details of the application can be viewed at Wyre Council using ref: 19/00551/FULMAJ.
We anticipate a decision in Summer 2019.
