Villagers against plans for a new 67-home estate in north Cumbria will find out next week if their objections have been successful.
Story Homes wants to build the estate in Thursby, on land to the west of St Andrew’s View. It will be discussed by Allerdale council’s development panel on Tuesday.
The panel threw out a previous application from the Cumbrian housebuilder in April after villagers said the development – the second phase of the planned estate – would cause traffic chaos and cause shadow flicker from the nearby turbines.
Concerns were raised that noise from the busy A595 and the nearby wind turbine would be made worse by additional housing.
Story Homes has resubmitted its bid with a new noise survey and shadow flicker assessment.
Officers are recommending that councillors approve the scheme, subject to conditions and the signing of a legal agreement.
Conditions imposed by the council remain the same. If members of the panel grant Story Homes approval, the housebuilder will be required to include 13 affordable housing units in the development; seven for affordable rent, three starter homes and three low cost housing.
Story Homes would also be required to produce a travel plan monitoring contribution of £6,600. Councillors will be taken on a site visit on Monday before making their decision.
Despite the concerns raised by residents, the report said scale and layout, highway safety and noise levels would all be acceptable.
On the issue of shadow flicker, the report said: “The impacts from shadow flicker from nearby wind turbines would not lead to unacceptable living conditions of the dwellings.”
