New homes snapshot - beside the sea on the Lancashire coast
Lancashire is a county in north west England with a population of just under 1.5m. It has a beautiful coastline and prime sandcastle sand can be found on the main beaches at St Annes, Blackpool, Cleveleys, Fleetwood and Morecambe.
Lancashire boasts a busy new homes market thanks to numerous housebuilders. Last year, planning permission was granted for 650 new homes in South Ribble, with a percentage being affordable homes.
Lancashire is a well-connected area, relying strongly on the M6 which runs past Lancaster and Preston. With stations at Lancaster and Preston, the West Coast Main Line provides direct rail links with London and other major cities. Heysham, on the edge of Morecambe Bay has direct ferry links to the Isle of Man and Ireland.
With plenty of attractions, shopping centres and nature sites in Lancashire, the appeal of the county is very apparent.
