Welcome to Huncoat Garden Village

Welcome to the Huncoat Garden Village website. We are in the early stages of an exciting journey to bring high quality homes, local employment, community services and amenities to Huncoat and the wider area.

Huncoat Garden Village presents a unique opportunity to build upon what is important about village life in Huncoat and to provide:

  • a range of new homes which provide more choice and extend the housing offer both locally and within Hyndburn
  • new employment opportunities through flexible working space and a community hub
  • community facilities and opportunities for both existing and new residents of Huncoat
  • a network of open space and green corridors to provide opportunities for walking, cycling and outdoor activity
  • excellent transport connections, including road and rail

This website will help you find out more about Huncoat Garden Village – what has happened so far (including a summary of feedback from the 2018 consultation), what a Garden Village is all about, more information about the development of the Masterplan, and most importantly how you can get involved.

The Masterplan will develop a Vision, a plan setting out where different land-uses should be located and a high level delivery plan for Huncoat Garden Village. The Masterplan is being developed by Hyndburn Borough Council supported by Arcadis and Avison Young.
