New Homes for Kendal
HOW Planning has successfully secured outline planning approval for up to 105 new homes in the picturesque Lake District town of Kendal.
Acting on behalf of Story Homes, HOW Planning submitted an outline planning application for the new homes on a greenfield site located at Kendal Parks Farm which has now been given the go-ahead by South Lakeland District Council.
The 4.98 ha site had been allocated for residential development in the Local Plan Land Allocations and the approved scheme will better utilise its potential, ensuring the land has a more effective contribution to the needs of Kendal and provide much needed new homes for the town. Plans also incorporate areas of open space, landscaping, a children’s play area and all associated infrastructure works to facilitate the scheme.
Says Victoria Hunter, Planner at HOW Planning: “Story Homes has taken great care to ensure the scheme reflects the character of Kendal and surrounding area. Approval ensures they can now deliver an extensive residential development which will appeal to a broad range of individuals and families by providing a variety of high quality housing choices.”
The Kendal Parks Farm site is located 2 km to the South East of the town centre and is in a highly sustainable location, close to a number of bus routes as well as several local facilities which would be supported by the new homes. Consideration has been given to the size and style of the new homes as well as the building materials to deliver a scheme which fits in with the surrounding area.
