Whittingham scheme

Homes passed on appeal in Lancashire

Peter Brett Associates has secured full planning permission at appeal for housing at an 8.45-acre site in Whittingham, close to Longridge in Lancashire, on behalf of David Wilson Homes.

The scheme will deliver 78 new family homes, 30% of which will be affordable properties.

The application was initially refused by Preston City Council in April 2013, but permission on appeal was granted yesterday. The site comprises of disused agricultural buildings and the adjacent land.

Bernard Greep, director at Peter Brett's Manchester office, said: "This is yet another appeal decision where the absence of a five year housing supply has proved decisive. David Wilson Homes is committed to delivering the scheme quickly and making a meaningful contribution to housing needs on the edge of a Key Service Centre."

Andrew Taylor, planning director at David Wilson Homes, said: "David Wilson Homes is pleased to have succeeded in gaining planning consent for this scheme, which will provide much needed market and affordable housing in this part of Preston."

Peter Brett produced the planning and design and access statements, travel plan, transport assessment, sustainability statement and noise assessment which supported the application. It also co-ordinated a multi-disciplinary application team of around 20 specialist consultants.
