Unanimous approvals for South Ribble houses, industrial extension

Redrow Homes can now build 154 residences across two parcels off Shawbrook Road and Altcar Lane, while Hurt Plant Hire is set to consolidate all operations at its Farington headquarters.

South Ribble unanimously approved both applications at a planning meeting last Thursday. These decisions were made in line with officer recommendations.

Land off Shawbrook Road and Altcar Lane

Application number: 07/2023/00718/REM

Redrow Homes will deliver 154 homes as part of its 400-home masterplan for the Leyland area.

Proposals focus on two parcels of land accessed off Shawbrook Road and Altcar Lane. These parcels form phase four and five of Redrow’s outline application to build 400 homes, which was approved in 2017.

The scheme will provide a mixture of two- to five-bedroom houses, with 31 of those properties to be available for affordable rent.

This application supersedes a previously-approved version of the scheme, which has been altered to meet new building regulations and achieve at least a 31% reduction in carbon emissions with updated designs.

As mentioned previously, the homes will also be developed in two phases rather than one. Therefore, the layout has also been slightly changed to change the placement of some market and affordable units.

The project team includes Trevor Bridge Associates, ERAP, and SCP Transport.

Hurt Plant Hire

Application number: 07/2023/00286/FUL

The machinery supplier can now expand its current Farington headquarters in order to contain all its operations at the Lancashire Business Park site off Red Rose Drive.

Clover Architectural Design has drawn up the plans for the five-acre plot on behalf of Hurt Plant Hire, part of the Fox Group.

At present, the company’s headquarters is made up of Sandham House, a two-storey office block, as well as a small storage building and a wind turbine.

Large parts of the site also act as a transport hub with a fleet of around 150 vehicles, however this will be reduced as vehicle storage will now be moved to other depots.

Existing buildings will be retained, while a 1,300 sq ft concrete batching plant will be created along with a 12,000 sq ft and a terrace of five storage bays.

An asphalt plant comprising three silos and five cold feeder bins will also be built, replacing the wind turbine that is to be demolished.

In addition to Clover, the project team also includes Hamilton Technical Services and ADC Acoustics.

All these new builds taking place and not one local Councillor taking into account the 1908 Allotment Act.. I belong to our local allotment site and we currently have 76 people on the waiting list. Similar number on the Bamber Bridge site. ..I have approached two Councillors up to now. One answered me and referred me on to another one..not yet replied.. Not good enough.
