Lamplugh Village, Cumbria
Plans for a scheme of 26 new homes and community facilities in the village of Lamplugh, Cumbria have been given the go ahead by Copeland Borough Council.
The scheme for John Swift Homes, will see a mix of traditional family homes built alongside a community village hall, pavilion and formal green.
Situated on a prominent crossroads the 4.5 acre site, which runs alongside the a mill conversion, is currently a Cumbrian greenfield site and is used as agricultural land.
The development will vary in size and cater for a broad range of households. A group of 6 terraced homes along the eastern end of the site will offer three bedrooms set in 1,250sq ft and looking over a village pond.
The northern edge of the development will be home to 8 detached and semi-detached homes boasting three and four bedrooms, each between 1,450sq ft and 1,900sq ft.
It’s completed with four bed detached homes sat in 2,000sq ft overlooking a new village green and a prominently placed farmhouse with a courtyard of barns aiming to recreate a traditional farmyard setting.
