Residents encourage objections to Ulverston Town Hall plans

South Lakes Housing plans to convert the former town hall into nine affordable rented apartments and a further nine rented flats are planned for a new annexe, to be built behind the Queen Street building.

Members of the city council's development control committee raised a number of concerns regarding the proposals put forward by Kingmoor Park Properties to build on land at the Harker Industrial Estate.

The committee had been recommended to approve the plans.

But a motion was proposed by Heather Bradley, Labour councillor for Currock, to reject the plans after she raised a number of issues.

She drew attention to the report published by development manager Chris Hardman.

It said: "The applicant has not offered any affordable housing on-site and has submitted a viability statement to confirm that if the requirement as outlined above was required the development would not be viable."

The report also addressed the issue of providing cash towards extra educational costs incurred by building the houses.

It said Kingmoor Park Properties had concluded it was not able to provide the level required "for either primary or secondary education or the associated transport requirements"."

Missed this story at the time, but on 30th August The Cumberland News reported that this is going to a public inquiry.

Cumbria County Council’s £2m investment in housing for the elderly



A NEW £2m fund will be ploughed into providing better homes for the elderly, it has been revealed today.

Cumbria County Council has launched its Extra Care Housing Grant Award scheme, which aims to attract builders and businesses and help make sure housing is fit for the future. The grants programme makes up almost half of the £4.24m the council has set aside in capital funding for extra care housing and supported living accommodation, with the aim of delivering 2,000 more homes across the county by 2025.

Councillor Peter Thornton, cabinet member for health and care services, said: "Cumbrians are proudly independent and want to live in their own homes for a long as possible. Extra care housing helps them to achieve this.

Town councillors recommend refusal for housing development plans near Natland Mill Beck Lane at Kendal


http://www.thewestmorlandgazette.co....mages/6800640/

TOWN councillors have backed residents in their bid to stop nearly 30 homes being built on ‘a beautiful green space’.

More than two dozen objectors packed into Kendal Town Council’s planning committee on Monday night to voice their opposition to the proposed housing development on land behind Helme Drive.

The application, by Natland-based Oakmere Homes, proposes 26 houses with access from Natland Mill Beck Lane off the Burton Road roundabout near Asda.

Another application, also put forward by Oakmere, proposes that the rest of the field be used to a ‘training and teaching area’ with hardstanding, for potential use by schools, clubs and adult learning groups for ecological projects.

Plans revealed to transform Bitts Park lodge in the wake of floods



This is how the lodge that sits within Carlisle’s Bitts Park could look as part of plans to improve the popular attraction.

The building, currently out of use, is set to be given a new lease of life as Carlisle City Council looks to continue improving flood resilience in the park following Storm Desmond.

The existing pavilion was severely damaged along with the public toilets and depot when the park flooded in December 2015. However the lodge, which sits adjacent to the car park, only suffered minor flooding in its basement.

Homes plan goes back in for old fish factory site




Homes plan goes back in for old fish factory site

Cumbrian Seafoods, Maryport

The developer behind rejected plans to demolish a disused Maryport factory to make way for 65 homes has not given up on the project.

West Yorkshire firm Prospect Estates revealed plans to develop the site of the former Cumbrian Seafoods factory at Solway Industrial Estate in June and applied to Allerdale council for outline planning permission to develop a mix of houses and flats.

Planners rejected the proposal, saying the development would result in the loss of an existing employment site and that Prospect failed to demonstrate the homes would be of acceptable standard.
