Harrison Pitt secures housing deal for landowner

Harrison Pitt Architects has gained outline planning consent for 50 homes in the village of Galgate, near Lancaster, and secured a deal on behalf of the landowner with a national housebuilder.

The practice successfully marketed and sold the 4.35 acre site, known as Launds Fields, to Persimmon Homes on behalf of the landowner.

Persimmon is now building the high-quality development, which features 35 homes for private sale and 15 affordable homes targeted at first time-buyers and families.

Richard Wooldridge, a director of Harrison Pitt Architects, said: “We’ve worked very closely with the landowner to deliver a solution that enables them to unlock the value in the site and allow much-needed new housing to be built in an area where there is high demand.

“This project further demonstrates our expertise in gaining planning permission for new homes on behalf of landowners by taking a partnership approach.”

The two, three and four bedroom development has been designed to complement existing housing in the area, including the nearby Crofters Fold development.

The predominantly greenfield site was previously occupied by storage buildings and a licensed caravan site and amenity block.
