Plans for green­field homes sub­mit­ted

Rossendale Free Press - - Joiner Jack Beats The Odds -

AN ap­pli­ca­tion to build 26 houses on dis­used green­field land has been sub­mit­ted to coun­cil plan­ners.

B&E Boys Limited have ap­plied to build eight three-bed­room homes and 18 four-bed­room homes on land off Green­snook Lane in Bacup.

Plan­ning per­mis­sion was granted to build 33 homes on this site in 2015, but de­vel­op­ers have had to amend th­ese due to dif­fi­cul­ties with the site.

The 1.45 hectare green­field site lies to the north of the Grade-II listed Christ Church, on Beech Street.

B&E Boys want to cre­ate an ‘as­pi­ra­tional’ hous­ing scheme.

In their plan­ning state­ment, they said: “The site com­prises a green­field site within a highly ac­ces­si­ble, pre­dom­i­nantly res­i­den­tial area close to Bacup Town Cen­tre.

“The site is sus­tain­ably lo­cated and ben­e­fits from good trans­port links to the wider bor­ough and be­yond.

“The site is con­sid­ered to rep­re­sent an ex­cel­lent lo­ca­tion for res­i­den­tial devel­op­ment which will com­ple­ment and en­hance the ex­ist­ing neigh­bour­hood.”

There have been no ob­jec­tions raised against this ap­pli­ca­tion or the pre­vi­ous one.
