A development of 42 new homes in Woodplumpton has been given the green light by Preston City Council.


The development site measures 2.27 hectares and is currently a green field, with trees and hedges defining the north, south and eastern boundaries. It is located within the Adopted Preston Local Plan 2012-2026 on land south of East West Link Road and east of Tabley Lane.

The application contains all detached properties, with 14 three bedroom houses, 23 four bedrooms and five of the homes will be five bedrooms.

In terms of design and appearance of the buildings, the dwellings come from the applicant’s ‘Heritage’ range and the proposal includes six different house types.

Some of the features are hipped roof designs, two storey projecting front pikes, timber boarding, brick solider courses, vertical brick detailing around openings, bay windows, canopies and one house type includes a pitched roof dormer.

Some of the proposed house types will include an integral garage, whereas others would be provided with detached garages.

The majority of properties would be brick, with different units having different brick finishes, although 13 dwellings would have a rendered finish to provide visual contrast throughout the site. Further contrast would be provided by the use of grey tiles on some properties and brown tiles on other units.

The approval is however subject to the applicant providing the full CIL payment, a financial contribution of £319,317, which the Council plans to split between off-site affordable housing and a Toucan crossing on Tom Benson Way.

The applicant has already made the required contribution towards the delivery of the East-West Link Road, but there will be no secondary school education contribution.
