Inspectorate gives consent to Wrea Green housing

Story Homes has secured outline planning permission for up to 100 homes in Fylde.

The housebuilder was granted outline permission by the planning inspectorate for the homes on land off Willow Drive, following a four-day inquiry in December 2015.

The site will provide a range of detached and semi-detached family homes.

David Hayward, development planner for Story Homes, said: “The scheme has been extremely well thought out and is not only high-quality, but will also complement the existing character of the village and provide open space for the use of the whole community. The homes will also help boost the supply of much needed new homes and make a contribution towards the supply of affordable housing in the Fylde.

“Our proposals will also provide local contractors with opportunities for work, and there will be knock on benefits for local supply chains and other local businesses and services.”

The project will include 30% affordable housing and open space.

Barton Willmore represented Story Homes.

The planning permission follows earlier refusals of a 100-home outline scheme in September 2014, and a 49-home outline scheme in January 2015.

Story Homes has another development in the Fylde area of Lancashire, with houses currently on sale at Brookwood Park, a development of 117 homes off Blackpool Road in Kirkham.
