Story progresses Halton homes

Story Homes has submitted detailed designs for a housing development on land south of Low Road in Halton, Lancaster, following a public consultation in June 2017.

The housebuilder is seeking permission for 87 homes on the site with associated infrastructure.

This follows Lancaster City Council’s decision to grant outline consent for up to 90 units on the site in May 2017.

As part of the development Story Homes said it will be providing £16,000 towards the improvement of playing fields at Halton Community Centre and around £280,000 towards provision of primary school places in the village.

Story Homes’ development planner Martin Nugent said: “We are seeking detailed planning consent for a new development of 87 homes on land south of Low Road, Halton. This follows outline planning being granted earlier this year and a further public consultation in June with the local community.

“We are renowned for designing high quality homes throughout the North West and for our striking street scenes on our developments. In the design of our proposal we have paid careful attention to the local area’s different forms of development, architecture, appearance and material and these will be highly visible when travelling around the development creating a unique sense of space. Wherever possible, we will use local materials on the properties and elsewhere on the site too.”

Lancaster City Council has identified Halton as a ‘sustainable rural village’ in its existing development plan.

A decision on the outline planning is expected in autumn 2017.
