Story Homes continues resi drive in Preston

Plans have been submitted by Story Homes for a development of 300 houses in Fulwood, Preston.

If approved, the development will include a mix of family homes, ranging in size from two to five bedrooms.

The development will include 45 affordable homes, designated for local people, which will support the local authority to meet its required numbers for the area.

The site, on land north of Eastway, already has outline planning permission approved for a mixed-use development of up to 300 houses, employment land, mixed-use centre and open space.

Eastway is one of 11 development sites owned by the Homes & Communities Agency which is being developed as part of the Preston, South Ribble and Lancashire City Deal.

The target is to deliver nearly 17,000 homes in central Lancashire over the next 10 years.

Martin Nugent, planner for Story Homes, said: “The site has already been allocated for a mixed use development which includes up to 300 houses. We have worked closely with the Homes & Communities Agency, Preston City Council and Lancashire County Council to take this forward with a high-quality scheme.

“We are well known for designing and building homes which contribute to the character of the local community.”

Financial contributions to transport links will be made, which include improvements to foot paths, cycle paths and highways.

Story Homes has another development in the Preston area at Cottam Hall, where work to build 283 new homes has just started.
