The scheme proposed to redevelop the site for residential use; in total it would provide 39 dwellings.
Policy 7 of the Central Lancashire Core Strategy seeks 30% of the proposed units to be affordable.
This development sought 12 affordable units, £1million in Community Infrastructure Levy and £500,000 in various S106 contributions.
After robust negotiations, this residential scheme was deemed unviable if it were to provide the 12 on-site affordable units along with the various S106 contributions. Eventually, the affordable housing expectation and S106 contributions were removed, leaving just the £1million CIL payment to be made.
