The Site

The proposals

The detailed application proposes 124 dwellings on land north of Meadowbrook, Burscough. The planning application seeks permission for all detailed aspects of the scheme including the layout, appearance, landscaping, access and scale.

The development proposals include a range of detached, semi-detached and terraced houses and a small number of apartments. All dwellings benefit from parking, whilst all the houses benefit from private gardens and apartments have access to shared amenity space.

Vehicular and pedestrian access to the development will be taken from Meadowbrook and connect to internal roads throughout the site.

Public open spaces form an important aspect of the proposed development and are located throughout the site for the benefit of the residents of the site and also existing residents.
