How Story Homes sees the new estate

It wants outline planning permission for the homes at Greymoorhill, off Kingstown Road and near junction 44 of the M6 motorway.

The firm says 57 of the properties, which would be built over a number of years, would be classed as affordable.

The plans show a new access road off the Kingstown Road/Parkhouse Road junction, forming a cross roads.

Story development planner Adam McNally claimed the development, which would include a public open space and children's play area, would help meet the area's housing needs.

"The site has excellent existing transport connections and nearby services, hence its identification as preferred option in the emerging [Carlisle] local plan.

“We will provide high quality and aspirational homes along with supporting community infrastructure including the delivery of new school places related to the development," he said.

If the outline application is approved by the city council, full details will be submitted later with a view to work starting next year.

Story Homes also has developments at Crindledyke, Blackwell, Scotby and Dalston. It is soon expected to apply for consent to build 99 homes at Hadrian’s Camp.

Have your say

Well said BILLY! He's got it in a nutshell.. Like i said at the start, these houses will enhance the area around Junction 44 and any building of new houses can only be a good thing for Carlisle. With clever businessmen like Fred story and Andrew Tinkler investing their money in Carlisle the City will have a very bright future. It's about time the Nimbys on this page supported these guys for the good of the City and stopped being so insular and inward looking!

Twin, Twine,Moan Moan... I wish would all give it a rest... People have Babies Population goes up, more houses are required simple as that. the more afordable the better!! If Fred Storey doesnt build them someone else will and they will be much worse quality and the money will go straight out of the local economy... In reply to AL. The airport has been an Airport since the 1920's you knew that when you kmoved there, Expansion was always going to happen,,, deal with it, I do live next door to the new proposed estate and i'm happy for it to happen, might make the rest of the property prices in the area a little bit more sensible!! In reply to JJ I agree with Big Ld, your asking too much, just because you over paid or extended your mortgage too much when to property market was inflated stop complaining to the rest of us.. progress is needed in this City or noone will want to move here and the bottom line is all of our porperties will go down oin price, at the moment its a semi prosperous area with planning for a new airport and new homes being built, people are investing and in the long run the economy locally will imporve... I really hope your not on the council JJ as that would expalin why this City has been going backwards for years... WE NEED MORE LOCAL BUSINESS MEN LIKE FRED STORY INVESTING IN THIS TOWN AND ALL YOU DO IS COMPLAIN..

What do you think of rail services in Cumbria?

Good. But there is always room for improvement

Not good: There needs to be much more investment

I rarely travel by rail
