MCI Developments, part of housebuilder Keepmoat Homes, has submitted an application to Wyre Council for 39 affordable homes on land west of Garstang Road in Barton.
The application proposes one-, two- and three-bedroom homes, providing a mix of houses and apartments on the 2.2-acre plot.
If approved, MCI would deliver the development before transferring ownership of the site to a registered housing provider.
The site is earmarked for residential development under Wyre Council’s adopted local plan.
Last year, MCI won approval for a similar scheme, comprising 39 affordable homes, on Rosslyn Avenue in nearby Preesall.
Eleanor Ogilvie, land and partnerships manager at MCI Developments, said: “Following positive engagement with Wyre Council to obtain planning permission in Preesall, this application at Barton provides MCI Developments with a further opportunity to deliver much-needed affordable homes.”
Hollie Barton, senior planning consultant at Maybern Planning and Development, the planning consultant for the scheme, said: “The application submission demonstrates MCI’s firm commitment to both assisting the authority in meeting its housing delivery requirements and delivering a sustainable development at a site which could otherwise remain vacant.”
The multidisciplinary team includes highways consultant WYG, Ironside Farrah as flood risk consultant and Trevor Bridge Associates as landscape architect.
