Lomeshaye Development Brief
The Council is committed to providing new employment land in the borough to help businesses create new job opportunities in order to meet the needs of the community and future generations. The Local Plan Part 1: Core Strategy allocated a Strategic Employment site for new development at Lomeshaye, near Nelson. Policy WRK3 of the Local Plan requires that a detailed Development Brief, including a design code, is prepared to help guide the development of the site.
The Development Brief sets out guidance for developers to ensure that new development on the site:
- is sympathetic to its setting within 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; and
- is easily accessible from the highway network and offers direct links to the footpath and cycle network.
A public consultation on the draft Development Brief was carried out between 10th August and 21st September 2018. The comments received will now be considered and any changes to the document will be made before it is put forward to Council for adoption. A copy of the draft Development Brief can be viewed below.
