Revised plans submitted for homes in Fylde village of Wrea Green

October 2014

A revised planning application for new homes in Wrea Green has been submitted.

Story Homes has amended the original outline plan, now proposing just 49 homes on land off Willow Drive in the Fylde village, instead of 100 as originally proposed.

David Hayward, Development Planner for Story Homes said: “We have revised our original plans and we now propose to build 49 homes in Wrea Green. We do still believe that 100 homes on this land is achievable, sustainable and warranted, however, we have taken the feedback from the planning committee, Council officers and the public on board and scaled back the proposal. We believe that our proposal offers a well designed scheme which will complement the existing character of the village and help to address the housing needs of the Borough, including an element of affordable housing.”

The plans have been submitted to Fylde Borough Council, with a decision expected in December or January.

The plans would help the local authority to address the under delivery of housing in the Borough by boosting the supply and would also potentially offer up to 30% affordable housing to address affordable housing needs in the Borough. Provision for open space to be enjoyed by the whole community is also included.

The proposal is Story Homes’ second in the Fylde area, with a reserved matters application also submitted recently for new homes in Kirkham. Story Homes recently acquired an opportunity from Bloor Homes who had already secured outline approval on the site off Blackpool Road in Kirkham.

Any development in the area would have a positive impact on the local economy by providing local contractors with opportunities to tender for work, and 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.
