Story Homes to consult on scaled back plans for former theme park

July 2016

We are holding a public consultation on new proposals for the regeneration and redevelopment of the former Camelot theme park site, to the south west of Chorley.

The plans are for up to 275 homes and would deliver improved walking and cycling paths, open green space, and opportunities for community facilities.

Drop-in consultations are being held on:
• Thursday 21 July at Charnock Richard Football Club, Charter Lane, PR7 5LZ, from 2pm until 8pm

• Saturday 23 July at Heskin Village Hall, Wood Lane, PR7 5NS, from 10am to 4pm

David O’Reilly, Head of Land and Planning for Story Homes said: “Over the last eight months we have been working hard to create a smaller scheme for the Camelot site that responds to the comments we received from the local community during our previous application.

“We have committed to not going higher than 275 homes across the site and we are now looking for feedback from local residents to help with our ongoing design work. This is a major scheme for our new team here in Chorley and we are determined to work closely with the community to ensure the plans are the best they can be for the local area.

“The former Camelot theme park is in desperate need of regeneration and we want to replace this eyesore with a high quality scheme that local residents and businesses will be proud of.”

Our original planning application for 420 houses was rejected by Chorley Borough Council in winter 2014. We made the decision not to appeal the refusal and instead committed to working closely with ward and parish Councillors and the wider community to develop revised proposals that meet the aspirations of politicians, local residents and stakeholders.
