The site is located on the south side of Garstang on the westerly edge of Catterall. This is a popular residential area with new services coming in the form of a local centre with several shops.

- 30% Affordable Housing.

- Provision of Public Open Space (POS).
We will need details of the purchasers Affordable Housing revenue assumptions which will most likely be based around the Affordable Units being 50% affordable rent and 50% shared equity/discount to market value.
Further enquires to be made to the joint Agent, Graham Anthony Associates.
There is the potential that dependant upon the outcome of other pending decisions in the area a contribution of £183,972.80 may be required towards secondary school provision. Individual purchasers will need to consider their own scheme against the formula and confirm the amount that has been allowed within their offer.
The POS requirement of the site for a scheme of this size is 0.264 hectares. This is dealt with within Condition 17 of the Planning Consent. The indicative layout plan shows 0.16 hectares of POS.
In terms of the Planning Conditions these are all relatively standard, although of note are as follows:
- Condition 5: Visibility Splays.
- Condition 9: Certain trees are to be retained.
- Condition 12.
- Condition 16: Reserved space for Medical Centre and Pharmacy. This land is being retained by the land owner with full rights of access.
Relationship with adjacent development:
The site has direct access from the A6 and also has the benefit of a right of access along a road leading from Daniel Fold Lane to the new Wainhomes development which will give access to ten of the plots. When Phase 1 was sold a full right of access has been reserved and Wainhomes are to construct the road to an adoptable standard.
Wainhomes have a right to connect into any existing conduits within the land and are obliged to construct new conduits for all services excluding gas along the access road. The subject site has the right to connect into those new services together with the right to upgrade them where necessary.
