Planning permission secured for Lancashire lakeside development
Maze Planning Solutions and Urban Green secure planning permission for 49 holiday homes at Lancashire leisure park.
Following a successful appeal, Maze Planning Solutions and arboriculture, landscape and ecology consultant Urban Green have secured detailed planning permission for 49 holiday homes at Leisure Lakes in West Lancashire, on behalf of the owner, Leisure Lakes.
The proposed holiday homes will be built in woodland with a lakeside setting and will form part of significant planned improvements to an outdoor pursuits, watersports and caravan park near the village of Tarleton.
The site lies within the green belt and much of it is within an area defined by Lancashire County Council as a Biological Heritage Site, and is covered by a Woodland Tree Preservation Order.
West Lancashire Borough Council refused to approve the detailed design for the holiday homes in May 2013, but the scheme has now been approved following reconsideration by a government planning inspector.
According to Maze, the appeal success owes much to work carried out by Urban Green, which it commissioned in the latter stages of the project to prepare a woodland management programme, construction management plan and arboricultural assessment, as well as landscape design proposals for the holiday homes.
‘Urban Green’s work enabled Leisure Lakes and the Borough Council to re-engage in discussions about the scheme after the May 2013 refusal,’ it states, and this ‘led to the parties resolving their differences during the appeal process and presenting the planning inspector with an agreed scheme’.
