Plans lodged for 88 homes at Garstang

Housebuilder Taylor Wimpey has submitted an application for a residential scheme off Cockerham Road in Lancashire, which would form part of a wider development of 260 homes in the area.

The proposed development is on land close to Garstang earmarked for housing in the Wyre Local Plan.

Taylor Wimpey’s 88 dwellings include a range of family homes from two-bedroom apartments to four-bedroom homes, with the majority comprising two- and three-bed semi-detached houses – 30% of which would be affordable housing.

The scheme would be known as Cockerham Lane and has been submitted to Wyre Council under the housebuilder’s regional subsidiary, Taylor Wimpey North West.

Ian Harrison, land and planning director at Taylor Wimpey North West, said: “The land is allocated for residential development and included in the Wyre Local Plan; our application forms the first part of this wider development and we have worked hard to ensure that the scheme is tailored to meet the need for new family housing and investment in the area.”

Lichfields is the planning consultant on the scheme. Subject to being granted consent, Taylor Wimpey aims to start on site in the first quarter of 2021.

Nearby, Miller Homes has a 200-home scheme called Beacon Park, outside Catterall, a village on the A6 close to Garstang.

Taylor Wimpey, meanwhile, won planning approval in February to build 195 homes on the site of the former Hartshead High School in Ashton-under-Lyne, and plans to start work at the 15-acre site later this year.
