Brief

Planning approval to build up to 250 homes, football pitches and associated building to house changing facilities and a sports facility located within green belt was approved in late 2015.

Urban Green was appointed to prepare a masterplan and LVA for a detailed planning application.

Solution

The scheme will see a mix of family homes built on the 7 hectare on playing fields site, while four new sports pitches and associated changing and parking facilities will be created on a second five-hectare site 100m away.

An existing children’s play area on will be significantly extended and improved and a 20m odour buffer zone installed next to the nearby abattoir.

 

Happy Client

“This development marks a significant investment for Great Harwood and the wider borough, giving Hyndburn a boost in terms of the number of larger family homes.

We’ve taken on board the concerns of local residents about the loss of playing fields and the existing football pitches will be replaced with significantly upgraded facilities on the second site, bringing a wide range of community benefits.”

Katie Delaney, Associate PWA Planning

Results

The development marks a significant investment into the town and the wider borough and helps meet its shortage of housing stock.
