Huncoat Design Code – Have Your Say

** New survey running until 10th September 2021**

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback recently on the Huncoat Garden Village Masterplan. All the comments are being reviewed by the team and will be used to help refine the final Masterplan.

In the Masterplan consultation, lots of people asked for more information about the Garden Village proposals. People wanted to know what the houses and buildings would look like and how the streets and open spaces would be designed and looked after. In parallel to finalising the Masterplan, we are now looking at all of these issues in more detail by preparing a Design Code for Huncoat. The Design Code will ensure the Garden Village reflects Huncoat’s special character and history, whilst also making sure it is sustainable and fit for the future.

To help us prepare the Design Code we would like to hear what it is about Huncoat you love, what makes it special and how we can reflect this in the new development.  There are several ways you can have your say:

  • Take a look at our summary leaflet available here. This will also be posted through letterboxes across Huncoat, so look out for this on your doormat soon. The leaflet explains how you can send us photographs and notes to tell us about the buildings, spaces and streets that you love in Huncoat. The back of the leaflet gives you some ideas of things we would particularly like to hear your thoughts on. 
  • Alternatively, fill in our online survey by clicking here.

Please make sure your comments reach us by 10th September 2021.

Welcome to Huncoat Garden Village

 Hyndburn Borough Council have been busy working with their consultants, Arcadis, to develop and build on previous proposals for Huncoat Garden Village. The current Masterplan has been shaped by ideas from two previous public consultations, which invited the community to steer ideas. 

Guiding future development in Huncoat to meet the demand for more new homes in Hyndburn, the Masterplan details a series of proposals for the creation of Huncoat Garden Village. The Masterplan includes proposals for a new village centre, a new road, existing road network improvements and high-quality new homes.

The aim is to promote Huncoat as a location within Pennine Lancashire where people desire to live, work and enjoy.
