Planning application submitted for Clitheroe homes development

Plans have been submitted for a development which will deliver 36 homes in Clitheroe.

Prospect Homes is proposing to build the homes on land off Union Street in Low Moor.

If approved, the development will comprise a range of two to four-bedroom homes, as well as public open space and landscaping.

Neil Waddington, Managing Director of Prospect Homes, said: “Our proposed development off Union Street in Low Moor will provide much-needed new housing for the area in a sustainable location just a mile from Clitheroe town centre.

“The scheme has been carefully designed to reflect the existing character of the area and blend in sympathetically with its surroundings, and we believe it will make a positive addition to the town.

“We have recently commenced work on our Rose Gardens development off Woone Lane in Clitheroe, and these latest plans are a further sign of our commitment to help meet the high demand for housing in the area.

“Our plans are now with Ribble Valley Borough Council for their consideration and, subject to approval, we hope to start work on site in late 2017."

The proposed development will go some way to helping the council meet its objective of providing 5,600 new homes in the Ribble Valley by 2028.

Of the 36 proposed dwellings, 25 will be sold on the open market, while a further 11 will be made available as affordable housing, including three affordable homes earmarked for elderly people.

As part of the development, Prospect will also make financial contributions towards public open space and education in Clitheroe through a planning agreement with the council.

Prospect Homes is currently building across the North West including in Clitheroe, Rochdale and Littleborough.
