New Bellway development in Lancaster approved by councillors

| News

Plans for 116 new homes to be built in Lancaster have been given the green light by councillors, subject to a planning agreement being finalised.

Bellway Strategic Land’s full planning application for the site off Quernmore Road was conditionally approved by Lancaster City Council’s planning committee on Monday 27 February.

The project will see a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments, two-bedroom bungalows and two, three and four-bedroom houses built, with 81 homes provided for private sale and 35 affordable homes available for local people through low-cost rent or shared ownership.

The new homes will be set alongside public open space including a play area and a footpath providing a circular walk around the development.

The new development is designed to reflect local style and heritage while meeting the housing needs of the local area.

Martyn Earle, Bellway Strategic Land Director for the North, said: “We look forward to work starting at our new site off Quernmore Road once we have finalised the planning agreement for the development.

“Throughout the design process, we have prioritised creating a site that will seamlessly integrate with the area as a natural extension of Lancaster.

“To preserve the open nature and appearance of the development’s surroundings, we will provide thoughtfully designed and attractive homes of the highest quality alongside extensive landscaping.

“The range of high-quality house types available will pay homage to key designs already found in the area, including their use of stone, brick and render. All properties will have modern insulation and heating, as well as electric vehicle charging points.

“With sustainability also in mind outside the home, we aim to protect green space wherever possible – including existing trees and hedgerows. Likewise, we will enhance pedestrian and cycle routes and promote access to key public transport links.

“We are creating a green entrance to the development and a significant landscape buffer to further incorporate this new neighbourhood into the wider settlement.

“We have a proven track record of prioritising placemaking and encouraging growth to make a positive difference in communities.”
