Lancashire region has exchanged contracts to purchase land allocated for housing on the outskirts of Kendal.

Around 143 new homes would be delivered on the site in the town located on the edge of the Lake District National Park.

The land off Windermere Road, High Sparrowmire is allocated for housing in the adopted South Lakeland Local Plan.

Subject to planning consent, the proposed Charles Church development scheme will meet a need for family housing in the area, offering a mix of one- to five-bedroom properties.

Although details are still to be finalised, the housebuilder anticipates 35% of the homes will be delivered as affordable-rent or discount to market value.

Andrew Laing, Land and Planning Director, Charles Church Lancashire said: “We’re delighted to have secured this opportunity to move forward with our plans for new homes in Kendal.

“This proposal will make a significant contribution towards housing needs in Cumbria and deliver high quality new homes with significant open space for residents and the wider community to enjoy.”

A planning application is now being prepared for submission to Westmorland and Furness Council.
