MORE details have been revealed about plans for 19 new homes in Cleator.

Copeland Borough Council has received a further, more detailed planning application for the homes on land to the north of Flosh Meadows, Cleator.

The latest application shows plans for the layout, scale, appearance and landscaping of the homes, which are an extension of the 21-dwelling scheme previously approved in 2016.

New dwellings for the Cleator site would have sandstone features, natural slate roofs and roller shutter garage doors.

The applicant, Richard Mulholland of Flosh Farm House, has said that 13 dwellings would be build per hectare.

Issues have been raised at previous stages of the development process but the applicant has said that care has been taken to avoid disruption.

He said “the properties are shown to have large driveways to accommodate a number of vehicles” and a minimum of two parking spaces will be provided within the curtilage of each dwelling.

In the latest application, the developer said that bases of trees and hedges would be kept free of weeds using herbicides and planting would be carried out between November and March if planning permission was granted.

Trees and hedges planted as landscaping would be maintained for the first five years and watered during times of drought. Field maple, strawberry trees and wild cherry trees would be included in the stock.

Planning consent has also been sought from the council to build a single dwelling on land at Rheda Park in Frizington. The site is that of the former Rheda Mansion.

And a recent application has revealed plans to redevelop and reinstate Scalegill Hall in Moor Row. Residential properties are set to be built on the neglected site.

The public have a right to view and comment on all applications submitted to the council for approval.
