Special meeting to beheld over Cockermouth estate plan

A SPECIAL meeting will be held next Thursday about plans for up to 320 homes in Cockermouth.

Story Homes wants to build the estate on land off Strawberry How.

The company has lodged a planning application for 96 homes and an outline application for up to 224 houses.

More than 150 people have objected, prompting the town council to arrange a meeting at 7pm in the town hall to discuss the plans.

People are concerned about traffic and the impact on local services and schools.

Since lodging the application, the company said 28 people contacted them about buying a property.

Adam McNally, development planner for Story Homes, said: “We are aware of the objections and consider that our application provides thorough and evidential planning justification in line with current local and national policies.

“We wish to reaffirm that our scheme will bring with it a number of important economic, social and environmental benefits to the area including a quality mix of housing, job creation and improvements to Tom Rudd Beck.”
