Galgate housing on site

Harrison Pitt Architects has gained outline planning consent for 50 homes in the village of Galgate, near Lancaster, to be delivered by Persimmon Homes.

Along with producing designs for the scheme, the practice marketed and sold the 4.35-acre site in Main Road, known as Launds Fields, to Persimmon on behalf of the landowner.

Persimmon will now start on site at the development, which features 35 homes for private sale and 15 affordable homes targeted at first time buyers and families.

The two-, three- and four-bedroom properties have been designed to complement existing housing in the area, including the nearby Crofters Fold development which is also by Persimmon Homes.

The greenfield site was previously occupied by storage buildings and a licensed caravan site and amenity block.

Richard Wooldridge, director of Harrison Pitt Architects, said: “We’ve worked very closely with the landowner to deliver a solution that enables them to unlock the value in the site and allow much-needed new housing to be built in an area where there is high demand.

“This project further demonstrates our expertise in gaining planning permission for new homes on behalf of landowners by taking a partnership approach.”
