Plans passed for new homes in Hambleton

January 2016

Plans to build 51 new family homes in the village of Hambleton have been given the go ahead following completion of a planning agreement.

The development, on land east of Carr Lane will see a mix of two, three and four bedroom high quality detached and semi-detached houses built by Story Homes.

Up to 30 per cent will be affordable homes in a combination of two bed terrace houses, and two and three bed semi-detached homes – which are intended for local people.

The majority of these will be available to rent, while a small number will be available to purchase on the open market at a discounted rate.

The homes will contribute towards Wyre Borough Council’s housing requirement and address its historic under-delivery.

Planning permission for the site was granted by Wyre Borough Council in November, but was subject to a section 106 agreement being completed.

As part of that agreement Story Homes will help fund extra school places where required.

The area will also benefit from the New Homes Bonus, a government grant paid to local councils for increasing the number of homes. The money will be used to improve existing and new services in the area.

Story Homes planner David Hayward said: “The development is the first we have applied for in Wyre, and represents our continued growth in Lancashire.

“The development will help the local authority meet its required housing numbers for the area. And it will also help stimulate the local economy, creating a number of direct and indirect jobs.

“We have a policy of using local sub contractors and businesses from the local supply chain wherever we can.”

Story Homes submitted the planning application in June 2015  following consultation with local residents and stakeholders, who had the opportunity to make suggestions and comments.

Advice on planning for the development was given by Manchester based Barton Willmore.

Dan Mitchell, planning partner at Barton Willmore said: “We are delighted with the approval of this scheme and the economic benefits it will bring to the area. The approval follows a process of constructive dialogue with the Council who recognise the immediate requirement to deliver much-needed affordable new homes for local people in Wyre.”
