Chorley approves 80 homes

Housebuilder Persimmon has secured planning permission from the council to build apartments and houses on brownfield land off Brookwood Way in Buckshaw Village.

Chorley Council unanimously voted in favour of the scheme at its planning committee meeting on 24 May.

Set on 4.35 acres, the project will redevelop land that was previously used by aerospace company BAE Systems. It will be accessed via three points on Brookwood Way.

Persimmon’s neighbourhood will include 24 affordable homes, of which 17 will be designated for social rent and the remaining seven will be available for shared ownership.

Under plans designed by Woodcroft Design, the housing development will have six one-bedroom apartments and 24 two-bedroom flats. The houses would break down to 47 with three bedrooms and three four-bedroom units. The houses would be a mix of mews, semi-detached and detached.

Since the site borders the Trinity Church of England Methodist Primary School to the south, Persimmon will also be constructing a pick-up/drop-off parking area for the school.

The application’s reference number with Chorley Council is 20/01141/FULMAJ.
