Masterplan – The Lanes, Penwortham

Masterplan, The Lanes, Pickerings Farm, Penwortham

In order to satisfy the requirements of Policy C1: Pickering’s Farm, Penwortham, in the South Ribble Local Plan, a Masterplan for the comprehensive development of the site needs to be agreed. 

Following a consultation exercise which was conducted by the developers, Taylor Wimpey, on a Draft Masterplan submission between 9th November 2018 and 4th January 2019, a Final Masterplan was submitted to the Council which the developers wished to be adopted for Development Management purposes to guide the determination of planning applications on the site.

Following a number of discussions and meetings between the developers and officers of the Council, issues were raised which the developers have sought to address through the submission of an updated version of the Masterplan. 

This Masterplan also considers issues raised by residents and Statutory Consultees. The Masterplan comprises a suite of documents which are made up of the following:

i) The Masterplan, including technical appendices on Highways, Landscaping, Ecology and Flood Risk and Drainage;

ii) The Design Code;

iii) The Infrastructure Delivery Schedule (IDS)

iiii) Statement of community consultation

A summary the process so far and a summary of the changes from the previous document versions can be found here.

If you wish to make any comments on the Masterplan, please send these by 4th September 2020, either in writing to Development Management, SRBC, Civic Centre, West Paddock, Leyland PR25 1DH or email to the dedicated email address: thelanespenwortham@southribble.gov.uk

Once the consultation period is complete, the responses received will be summarised and included in an officer report to the Planning Committee. 

The Planning Committee, at its 17th September 2020 meeting, will decide whether to adopt the Masterplan for Development Management purposes or not. 

The Planning Committee meeting is likely to be held virtually and details on how to observe or participate will be published in the agenda pack 5 working days before the date of the meeting.
