Plans have been submitted for a development of 300 new family homes in Preston.
If approved, the development will include a mix of high quality homes, ranging in size from two to five bedrooms.
The development will also include 45 affordable homes, designated for local people, which will support the local authority to meet its required numbers for the area.
The site, on land north of Eastway, Fulwood already has outline planning permission approved for a mixed use development comprising of up to 300 houses, employment land, mixed use centre and open space provision.
Eastway is one of 11 development sites owned by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) which are being developed as part of the Preston, South Ribble and Lancashire City Deal.
The City Deal is an agreement between Lancashire Enterprise Partnership, Preston City Council, South Ribble Council and Lancashire County Council, along with central government and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA). It will deliver nearly 17,000 homes in central Lancashire over the next 10 years.
Martin Nugent, Planner for Story Homes said: “The site has already been allocated for a mixed use development which includes up to 300 houses. We have worked closely with the Homes and Communities Agency, Preston City Council and Lancashire County Council to take this forward with a high quality scheme.
“We are well known for designing and building homes which contribute to the character of the local community.
“The development will bring a number of benefits to the area including job creation and security for local subcontractors and a knock on effect for the local supply chain.”
Financial contributions to transport links will be made, which include improvements to foot paths, cycle paths and highways.
Councillor John Swindells, Deputy Leader of Preston City Council said: “This is a key site for new homes in Preston and we are pleased Story Homes are making progress with their planning application.
“It is another indicator of the housing and economic growth that is being generated through the Preston, South Ribble and Lancashire City Deal.”
