115 Homes plan for Cleator


Gleeson Homes have applied for planning permission from Copeland Borough Council to build 115 homes on agricultural land to the north of Cleator Mills (reference 4/20/2472/0F1), close to the former Kangol factory. 

The proposed development will comprise 2, 3 & 4 bedroom properties. 

The application relates to an area extending to 4.39 hectares which lies to the south of the Cleator. It is located to the south of Trumpet Terrace and The Grove Court Hotel, to the east of the residential development of Howthorn Fields, to the north of the vacant Cleator Mills development and to the west of the Cleator Mills access road and the houses at Brookside.

The proposed development would be in a 3a flood risk zone, meaning that homes have a probability of a 1:100 year risk of flooding, however some sections of the River Ehen have a 1:25 year risk. The developer is to improve flood defences and water run-off, with floor levels being higher than the normal recommended level.

An ecological appraisal of the area has been carried out for the developer, which highlights some protected species: 

A number of bat species are recorded from the general area, with several pipistrelle roosts present in houses to the south-west of the site. Otter are present along the River Ehen. Red squirrel are widely recorded from the general area, including from within Cleator and a number of records are from the last five years suggesting that red squirrel are still extant in the area despite the presence of grey squirrel. The only badger record is from the A5086 over 600m south-west of the proposals. There are a large number of records for hedgehog from within Cleator, including from the A5086 adjacent to the proposed development.
