Grimsargh Retirement Village

Almost 400 homes proposed for Preston

Chloé Vaughan

Three planning applications have been submitted for schemes across Preston totalling nearly 400, including an affordable housing development, a golf course masterplan, and a retirement village.

The first, pictured above, is a reserved matters application for a retirement village in Grimsargh, which has been submitted after gaining outline planning approval in January this year.

The 11.8-acre site is currently used for agriculture, and is bound by open fields to the north, west, and south, and by Preston Road to the east. The proposal is for a 60-bedroom care home, 60 apartments, and 20 bungalows, along with a GP surgery and open space.

The developer is Applethwaite and IBI Group is the architect. Trevor Bridge Associates is the landscape architect and Smith & Love is the planning consultant.

Lightfoot Lane, Preston

The plot of land in the centre along with the building is set to be an affordable housing scheme

A proposal has also been submitted on behalf of developer Westchurch Homes to build 106 affordable homes on land to the rear of Lightfoot Lane in Preston.

The 5.7-acre plot of land is currently mixed residential and grazing land, and if approved, would result in the demolition of one four-bedroom house.

The housing provision is set to be mixed between 16 one-bedroom flats, 31 two-bedroom houses, 47 three-bedroom houses, and 12 four-bedroom houses.

The site has been subject to five previous planning applications which range in use. Four were approved, whilst the proposal for a nursery was refused back in 2015. MCK Associates is the architect and Trevor Bridge Associates is the landscape architect. Maybern Planning & Development is the planner.

Ingol Golf Course Development

The proposed site for 152 homes is part of the wider Ingol Golf Course development

After gaining outline planning approval for a 450-home scheme on the former Ingol Golf Club site off Tanterton Hall Road in 2018, a reserved matters application has been submitted on behalf of housebuilder Bellway Homes for 152 homes.

The mix of one, two, three, and four-bedroom homes on the 11-acre site would be built as part of a wider masterplan for mixed-use outline consent according to the application documents.

The scheme has been advised by Avison Young and architect APD.
