Gib Lane masterplan

Guidance for the development of the allocated site and will be used to inform the determination of planning applications.

The land between Gib Lane, Broken Stone Road and Livesey Branch Road is proposed to become a housing development site in the draft new Local Plan for Blackburn with Darwen. This site has the potential to be a distinctive and high quality housing development that respects the surrounding landscape and becomes a natural extension to Blackburn’s built up area.

Blackburn with Darwen Council has worked with the owners of the land to develop ideas for how the site could be developed. These ideas have been set out in a Masterplan which will guide future development.

This Masterplan will be taken into account by the Council in considering planning applications on the site. Proposals for development on the site will need to take account of what the Masterplan says.

For further information, please contact the Planning Policy Team on 01254 585344.

Please find below exhibition material to show how the Masterplan came together, explaining the main issues that were taken into account in developing it. This was made available to view at Livesey Library, Cherry Tree Lane, Blackburn for the six week consultation period from Monday 11th August 2014 until Monday 22nd September 2014.
