Stanley Investments has secured full planning consent in partnership with Jigsaw Homes for 75 homes in Heysham near Lancaster. The site was previously sold by Lancaster Council and remained vacant for several years before being secured by Stanley Investments for development at the beginning of the pandemic.
The new housing scheme comprising one, two, three, and four bedroomed homes will be for Affordable Rent supported with capital grant from Homes England. The scheme will also include 12 two-bedroom bungalows, and all units on the scheme have been designed to meet NDSS criteria.
Two areas of open space will be created supporting a sustainable urban drainage basin, along with a high-quality equipped area of play enhancing the quality and vitality of the new neighbourhood.
Neil Hughes, Associate Director at Stanley Investments said “This site was purchased and planning approval obtained entirely during the lockdown. We are very proud to maintain our track record of securing high quality, deliverable schemes within a swift timeframe. Like many of our colleagues and friends in the industry, we have not allowed the pandemic to unduly slow us down, and we have a great pipeline of similar schemes coming forward.”
