Taylor Wimpey and Homes England have released a draft masterplan set to guide the development of up to 2,000 homes at Pickering’s Farm, Penwortham.
The 244-acre site was allocated in 2015 by South Ribble Council as a major location for residential-led development in its Local Plan, while the site also forms part of the Central Lancashire City Deal.
As part of the City Deal, Pickering’s Farm has been identified as a preferred site and could account for a significant chunk of the 7,000 new homes required by South Ribble Council between now and 2026.
Architect 5plus and planner GVA How are working with Taylor Wimpey and Homes England.
The draft plan responds to an early stage consultation which was held between June and September. The document outlines the site’s potential for up to 2,000 homes, with “social and physical infrastructure to support the new and existing population” such as a primary school, community centre and park.
The delivery on the homes will be divided between up to four housebuilders, who will deliver between 30 and 150 houses each year.
A consultation on the draft plan will run until 21 December, and feedback can be given here.
