Plans for 86 new family homes in Wrea Green move step closer

May 2016

Plans for 86 new family houses in the Fylde village of Wrea Green have moved a step closer after Story Homes submitted an updated proposal.

In January we were granted outline planning permission for up to 100 new homes in Wrea Green.

We have now submitted reserved matters proposals which specify details of the houses and the proposed layout.

If approved the proposals for the site would provide a range of high quality Wrea Green mediaand high specification detached and semi-detached family homes as well as apartments and a bungalow on land off Willow Drive, helping to address local housing needs.

David Hayward, Development Planner for Story Homes said: “The submitted reserved matters proposals bring us a step closer to developing the site.

“The site was granted outline planning application for up to 100 new homes in January by the Planning Inspectorate following a four-day inspection in December.

“As with all our schemes we have been keen to ensure that it is in keeping with the local area and delivered to the highest standards. The homes will also help boost the supply of much needed new homes and make a contribution towards the supply of affordable housing in the Fylde.

“The development will also bring with it a number of benefits for the local community, including providing local contractors with opportunities for work, and knock on benefits for local supply chains and other local businesses and services.”

The plans also include several areas of open space which would be enjoyed by the whole community.

We have another development in the Fylde area, with houses currently on sale at Brookwood Park, a development of 117 homes off Blackpool Road in Kirkham.

Story Homes has previously won national awards for the High Wood development in Lancaster, which was recognised as one of the UK’s best developments of new build homes in 2014.

A decision regarding the Wrea Green application is anticipated in summer 2016.
