1,000 homes plan for clitheroe set for go ahead

THE biggest planning application in the history of the Ribble valley could be given the go ahead on Thursday.

More than 1,000 new homes could be built for the Standen estate, which would be situated between Clitheroe and the A59 bypass.

The proposal was submitted to the borough council in October 2012 by the Trustees of the Standen Estate and the council will vote on the plans on Thursday.

The plans include 728 ‘market’ homes and 312 ‘affordable’ homes, a total of 156 of which would be for people aged over 55.

Land would also be reserved for retail, service and communities services, with further space being used for a new primary school.

Council offciers have recommended that the application is passed by councillors subject to further work and the director of community services approving.

Coun Terry Hill, the planning committee chairman, said that he expected a large crowd to attend the meeting in the Council Chambers in Church Street.

New pedestrian and cycle routes could be built if the plans are approved along with children play areas.

The council’s core strategy, which sets out how many homes can be built in the borough by 2028, is due to be examined by the government in January.

Clitheroe Town councillor, Kevin Horkin, said: “I do not believe that Clitheroe currently has the infrastructure to be able to cope with such a huge influx of people if these houses are built.

“It will dramatically change the character of the town and until we see plans that would help the town deal with this new potential development I do not think that the town would cope.

“It would be a better idea to have these houses shared out proportionally across the borough instead of having them all in one place.

“That would reduce the impact on one location and its infrastructure.”

A decision on a further 345 houses at the Waddow View site in the town is due in January after an appeal was conducted recently.

Plans for 140 homes off Henthorn Road were approved by the borough council last month.

Pauline Wood, chairman of the Clitheroe Civic Society, said: “The society has carefully examined this application and has concluded that, on many counts, it is totally opposed to this development.

“This application seeks ‘an extension’ to Clitheroe which is totally unsustainable and unacceptable without destroying the existing ancient settlement of Clitheroe as a small town.”

One day I read that Clitheroe town centre is losing shops at a worrying rate, presumably because an insufficient number are using them. Then I read that councillors and the local Civic Society oppose further development of the town despite the fact that this would increase footfall in the shops. Cake and halfpenny???

No matter what the local people want and no matter how much we object this toothless council will capitulate and pass this development just like the wind farm at Car Hall in Langho despite 360 objection letters, money talks louder than common sense.

All the reasons people wanted to live in Clitheroe for have gone, ie the open countryside and the beautiful walks. I predict a housing price crash and Clitheroe in a few years time will be a run down urban slum. The Labour Party will be the dominant party and single mum's will be the majority feeding their baby's Greggs sausage rolls, oh no we can't do that Greggs closed down. Most the inhabitants will have tattoos and a dog called Tyson, you know the rest of this story.

Silly nonsense. To suggest that more housing will result in an urban slum with all the worst aspects of human nature on display is utterly ridiculous. Do try and get out more.

It's over development ,high business rates, and lack of parking that is causing the shops to become empty. Clitheroe is no longer a market town but an urbanized part of Blackburn. People either prefer to shop on the internet, or somewhere more pleasant where they can park their cars.

Overdevelopment, meaning more residents? Less parking space than there has been for years presumably (there was more when times were better?) . Blackburn is already urbanized so in what sense is Clitheroe an urbanized part of Blackburn? I don't follow your arguments.

The huge backlogs of traffic caused by the closure of the level crossing on Eshton Terrace is a sign of what is to come because of all these huge new developments. On Saturday, people were driving through Waddington and Whalley to get to the opposite side of town because of the chaos. Cars were queuing from the main town centre streets all the way down to Edisford school! Our roads simply cannot cope with all the cars these new developments will bring! Nearly 2000 new homes in Clitheroe at the moment! God knows how many more!

This is a change of heart from a couple of weeks ago when you were commenting on a hostel being opened in Church near Accrington. Despite living miles away from it you were in support of such a project and i think the quote you used was that they had to go somewhere. Dont you want more people in Clitheroe? And if not why not?

All the reasons people wanted to live in Clitheroe for have gone, ie the open countryside and the beautiful walks. I predict a housing price crash and Clitheroe in a few years time will be a run down urban slum. The Labour Party will be the dominant party and single mum's will be the majority feeding their baby's Greggs sausage rolls, oh no we can't do that Greggs closed down. Most the inhabitants will have tattoos and a dog called Tyson, you know the rest of this story.
This is a change of heart from a couple of weeks ago when you were commenting on a hostel being opened in Church near Accrington. Despite living miles away from it you were in support of such a project and i think the quote you used was that they had to go somewhere. Dont you want more people in Clitheroe? And if not why not? Surely they have to go somewhere!
Lol, you have been busted Michael. Classic NIMBY!!!!
Just come to have a look at the carnage I have caused, whistles and slips away quietly ;)

Silly nonsense. To suggest that more housing will result in an urban slum with all the worst aspects of human nature on display is utterly ridiculous. Do try and get out more.
Don't worry Michael us wiswell residents already think clitheroe is an urban slum anyone over 60 should be culled we think
