Duchy Homes looks to set seal on Preston resi

Reserved matters consent is sought for 66 homes at Swainson Farm and a nearby site in Goosnargh.

Duchy, which is advised by Emery Planning, has outline consent with two applications. The first covers 40 homes on land at the farm holding itself, of between two and five bedrooms each.

Of these 40 homes, 14 are to be affordable, representing 35% of the development. Outline approval was secured for the site at appeal in February this year, with a further appeal for 87 homes on land to the east failing to win over the planning inspector.

Design firm APD is working with Duchy Homes on the development, which will see housing replace buildings relating to poultry farming on the site.

APD’s design & access statement said: “The scheme provides a suitable and sustainable residential development that exhibits best practice and respects its context and surroundings with a diverse range of housing typologies proposed.

“The development will provide 40 new homes and will create a high quality sustainable residential neighbourhood which maintains and enhances the key existing landscape features, integrating the site into the wider area.”

The other 26 homes are on land opposite the Swainson Farm holding and were given outline permission in 2019.

Again, 35% of the homes will be classed as affordable, this number being nine of the 26 total. The site sitrs across Goosnargh Lane from the Swaibnson Farm plot, alongside an existing residential development.

The homes in this scheme are primarily detached and semi-detached, with a sole block of three homes.

The two development plots are on the fringes of Goosnargh, around 6.5km from Preston city centre. Urban Green is the landscape architect for both. The planning reference numbers are 06/2022/0999 and 06/2022/1000.
