Story Homes to submit plans for new development in Kirkham

Published:  10 September, 2014

Story Homes is pursuing full planning permission for new houses in Kirkham.

The homebuilder has taken ownership of land off Blackpool Road from Bloor Homes, who had already secured outline planning permission on the land in November 2013.

Carlisle-based Story Homes will be seeking full planning permission for up to 117 houses and apartments with up to 30% of these being affordable.

David Hayward, development planner for Story Homes, said: “The proposed development will help to address the housing requirements in the borough and will bring with it a number of economic benefits, including jobs for local people during the development phase.

“We are pleased to be working in the Fylde area and we look forward to bringing our award-winning homes to Kirkham.”

The land was acquired by Story Homes from Bloor Homes after a tender process, with Story Homes chosen as the preferred bidder in early 2014. Feedback received from the public after the initial Bloor Homes consultation will help to shape Story Homes’ plans before they are submitted during summer 2014.
