Plans for new homes in Leyland recommended for approval


Thursday 6th September 2012

Plans for 82 new homes in Leyland have been submitted.

A planning application to construct 82 new homes in Leyland, Lancashire, has been recommended for approval by South Ribble planners.

Rowland Homes and Lazarus Properties want to develop 82 new homes on land off Golden Hill Road. If plans for the 2.3 hectare site are approved, the developers will also provide £50,000 for public open space and street furniture in the town centre.

The developers would also provide 16 affordable homes within the site, which would mainly comprise of two-storey homes, and a three-floor block of six apartments.

Despite the shortage of new homes in the area, a small group of local residents have opposed the proposal on the grounds that the plans could lead to increased parking problems along Edgerton Road and Cleveland Road.

But the planning application has also received strong support from County council highway officials, who believe that the scheme would not create any problems with traffic.

Paul Rowley, managing director of Leyland based Rowland Homes, said: "This is an opportunity to see this vacant site redeveloped at long last with quality housing and associated landscaping. If approved, we will also be making a financial contribution to off-site open space and public realm improvements and our scheme would include 16 affordable housing units, of a type suitable for key workers such as nurses and teachers.

"In carrying out the work we would be sympathetic to local residents and do our utmost to keep disruption to a minimum."

The borough's development control committee is expected to make a final decision this week.
