LMP Architectural Consultants were employed by housing developers Dunham Brothers to design their development on Cowling Road in Chorley, fulfilling both the planning and building regulation stages.
The site lies within greenbelt land with the Leeds and Liverpool Canal running along the boundary. Prior to the redevelopment, the site was used as a commercial depot with a large area of open storage. LMP’s design concept was to create a group of buildings that suggested they had been converted from old wharf buildings.
Bespoke houses were designed to fit in with the courtyard arrangement which gave a choice of living accommodation of eighty types in twenty three plots.
Due to the sensitive position by the canal and open fields to other boundaries, the elevational treatment, varying roof lines and materials were all important factors in contributing to a successful development.
