Plans have been unveiled for a small number of new bungalows to be built in Langho, which developers say will “sit comfortably” within the surrounding landscape.

The development of 18 properties, a third of which will be affordable housing, is proposed for a site just east of Northcote Road.

Paul Walton, a director of the planning consultancy who have submitted the plans on behalf of the landowners said: “The proposals have been carefully considered. The development is a suitable scale and type of development for the area. We want to create homes which will be sympathetic to existing properties in the area and close attention has been paid to landscaping and the appearance of the houses so that they sit comfortably within their immediate surroundings.”

The number of bungalows proposed is in line with the requirement for new homes for Langho contained in Ribble Valley Borough Council’s recently adopted Core Strategy.

Mr Walton continued: “This is also a sustainable, accessible site, within walking distance of local amenities, including a primary school and public transport. The development will include much-needed affordable housing and we have worked with the planning authority to deliver a well thought-out and considerate small-scale housing plan which will feel very much a part of the village.

“We are aware of the pressures for new development within the Ribble Valley and Langho in particular, and we believe this scheme overcomes many of the concerns raised in respect of other larger proposals.”

The application for outline planning permission is likely to be considered by RVBC later this year.
