Up to 148 new homes could be built in Barnoldswick after plans were submitted to Pendle Council.

The outline application from The Sutton Family Pension Trust includes 101 three bedroom properties and 47 two bedroom properties on the former Barnsay Shed site and the adjacent field off Long Ing Lane.

Proposed houses will be two, two-and-a-half and three storey in height with spaces for 222 cars and 296 bicycles.

Access to the 5.07ha site, directly opposite the Silentnight factory across the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, will be from existing points off Long Ing Lane, although these are to be improved and upgraded according to documents submitted by planning agent the Campbell Driver Partnership acting on behalf of the applicant.

The planning application also includes open spaces, green corridors, areas for tree planting and landscaping, ponds and brooks and pedestrian routes to link with footpaths beyond.

The plan are set to go in front of Pendle Council’s West Craven Committee with a target date of December 1st.
