Plans submitted for second development in Kendal

Story Homes has submitted detailed plans for a second development of homes in Kendal, Cumbria.

The housebuilder secured outline planning approval from South Lakeland District Council in April 2015 to build up to 105 homes on the Kendal Parks Farm site.

The company has now submitted reserved matters applications for the first two phases of the development.

Story Homes has another development in Kendal. The Beeches off Natland Road has already proven to be popular with buyers, and was recently nominated for a UK Property Award.

The plans for Kendal Parks Farm will incorporate new affordable housing, areas of open space, landscaping, improvements to the existing children’s play area and all associated infrastructure works to facilitate the scheme.

David Hayward, Development Planner for Story Homes said: “Ahead of the submission we asked those households living adjacent to the site for feedback on our detailed plans and took their comments on board within our submitted plans. We are well known for designing and building homes which contribute to the character of the local area as the success of The Beeches has proved.

“This new scheme in Kendal will bring with it a number of benefits for the local community. Our proposals will also provide local contractors with opportunities to tender for work, and there will be knock on benefits for local supply chains and other local businesses and services.”

The two phasesform part of the northern portion of the Kendal Parks allocation for new homes in the council’s Local Plan. It will go some of the way to helping the local authority deliver its housing needs for the future, bringing much needed new homes to Kendal.

Located 2km to the South East of the town centre, the Kendal Parks Farm site is close to a number of bus routes as well as several local facilities which would be supported by the new homes.
