Peel L&P’s housebuilding arm Northstone is preparing a detailed Reserved Matters planning application for the land located south of Rays Drive in Scotforth, Lancashire, UK.

The plan for the project includes construction of 90 energy-efficient homes and new public open space at west of the Scotforth Road (A6) in south Lancaster.

The company plans to construct new sustainable homes and apartments in a range of styles and sizes to meet the local people needs.

At least 30% of these new homes will be affordable.

In addition, Northstone will transform 50% of the site into public open space, new pedestrian and cycle routes and natural play areas.

Northstone development manager Bernadette Barry said: “We want to set a high standard for new, sustainable homes in Lancaster to help meet local housing needs and would like to hear from residents on how best to do this.

“As part of these proposals, we’re excited to open up 50% of the site for new public space, footpaths, play areas and trees to allow new and existing residents to enjoy the site alongside nature.

“We welcome residents to view our virtual exhibition to find out more, ask questions, and submit their feedback to help us shape the final proposals before we submit a detailed planning application in the coming months.”

The company said that the project site already has outline consent for the residential development.

Recently, Peel L&P awarded a contract to construction firm Graham to build a £130m housing project at Wirral Waters in the UK.
