Rowland chops 105-home project to 63, earns council praise

“Why can’t all developers be a bit more enlightened about density?” gushed Cllr Sandra Pitman at Fylde Council’s planning committee meeting on Wednesday.

Pitman was far from the only councillor enamoured with Rowland Homes proposals for a 5.5-acre plot at Richmond Point in Lytham St Annes. The scheme sailed through the meeting with unanimous approval.

The site makes up one portion of the wider Richmond Point project, which has outline permission for 898 homes. Rowland Homes acquired much of Richmond Point in 2021 from Kensington Developments, and then purchased the remainder of the project – including the plot in question – the year after.

Kensington Development had initially planned for 77 houses and 28 apartments to be built on the site, but Rowland has opted to reconfigure the neighbourhood and ditch the apartment block.

Approved designs call for a mixture of terraced, semi-detached, and detached houses. There would six two-bed houses, 27 three-bed ones, 27 four-bed detached homes, and three five-bed detached residences.

All of the homes would have private gardens and areas for cycle storage.

To combat drainage issues, the proposals also include a pumping station.

De Pol Associates is the planning consultant for the project. SCP is the transport consultant and TEP is the environmental one. Richard Eaves is the landscape architect. Ironside Farrar is the designer of the pump station layout.
