Initial groundworks have started at a new development in Longton.


Story Homes announced the news following the purchase of land at Reynard Close, and after receiving planning consent from South Ribble Borough Council in July.

This development of 34 properties, known as Longton Grange, includes a range of one to six-bedroom homes.

30 per cent of the homes will be affordable, and the developer will pay over £50,000 towards the provision of improved public open space within Longton, as well as £480,000 in Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).


Adam Galleymore, Operations Director for Story Homes North West, said: “We’re delighted to have begun works on our 34-home development in Longton which will make an important contribution towards local housing delivery, including the provision of new affordable homes.

“The team has  worked hard, and to go from exchanging contracts and submitting a planning application in November 2022, to completing the purchase and starting work on site in August 2023 is exceptional.”

Story Homes says the first homes will be released for sale in Spring 2024.
