Lomeshaye Development Brief

We are committed to providing new employment land in Pendle. This will help businesses to grow and create new job opportunities.

The Local Plan Part 1: Core Strategy allocated a Strategic Employment site at Lomeshaye, near Nelson. As part of this, we need a development brief, which sets out  a design code for developers to make sure that any development:

  • is sympathetic to its setting in the wider environment
  • achieves a high standard of design, landscaping, parking and signage throughout, to ensure an attractive environment
  • incorporates sustainable building principles, is energy efficient and demonstrates good environmental performance
  • is easily accessible from the highway network and offers direct links to the footpath and cycle network

We carried out a public consultation on the draft Development Brief between 10 August and 21 September 2018. The comments we received have been considered at Policy and Resources Committee on 27 November 2018.
