Masterplan – Land off Lambs Road/Raikes Road, Thornton – This consultation has now ended.

Policy SA1/2 of the Wyre Local Plan 2031 allocates land at Lambs Road/Raikes Road, Thornton for residential development with a capacity of 400 dwellings. The allocation extends to 19.67ha of land on the eastern edge of Thornton and construction work is currently ongoing on the implementation of the first phase of development for 157 dwellings. Aside from the delivery of housing, Policy SA1/2 also requires the delivery of a small-scale convenience store and that education and highways infrastructure should be satisfactorily addressed.

Policy SA1/2 requires the site allocation site to be brought forward in line with a Masterplan that will act as a guide for future development the site allocation. The agreed Masterplan will be a material consideration in deciding subsequent planning applications relating to the site. Key features of the draft Masterplan are:

• The delivery of open-market and affordable housing.

• Land for a new 1-form entry primary school should it be required.

• A small-scale convenience store.
