Story Homes submits plans to bring 111 high quality homes and over £1m in community payments to Ulverston

February 2024

We are pleased to share that we have submitted plans to Westmorland and Furness Council which seek permission to deliver 111 new homes on Land at West End Farm in Ulverston.

The scheme includes a mix of one to six-bedroom new homes, with 35% of the properties earmarked to be affordable homes. There will be a range of house types available to suit a variety of needs, including bungalows, apartments, semi-detached and detached homes.

The plans incorporate new areas of open space running throughout the development for use by both new and existing residents in the area, and these attractive landscaped areas will offer ecological and biodiversity benefits through natural surface water management features.

In addition, we will contribute over £1,000,000 towards Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)* projects as identified by the Council.

Adam McNally, Senior Land & Planning Manager for Story Homes in Cumbria & Scotland said: “The submission of our application for 111 new homes in Ulverston is an exciting step forward for our business as we continue to build on our previous success in the South Lakes area.

“We’ve worked hard to design a scheme that takes into account the local vernacular, and the needs of the community. The high quality, high specification homes at this development would feature flexible, open plan layouts along with attractive, unique street scenes. As well as creating an aesthetically pleasing development, this scheme would make an important contribution towards local housing delivery, including the provision of new affordable homes and financial contributions for community infrastructure. We look forward to receiving a decision from Westmorland and Furness Council in due course.”

We hope for a decision on the application by the end of 2024. To find out more about the proposals please visit:
