Primrose Developments Ltd has acquired, for mixed use redevelopment, the former Carnforth Iron Works, Carnforth, Lancashire (NGR SD 4972 7083), which is listed on the Lancashire HER (PRN 4740). In order to gain access to the site once developed, the client is looking at the feasibility of the option to demolish a section of surviving stone perimeter wall (Site 03), and potentially demolish and/or alter a surviving former office building (Site 01), together with a further surviving building known as Iron Works Cottage (Site 02) and other surviving ancillary buildings (Site 04). Preplanning discussions between Primrose Developments and Lancaster City Council resulted in the council requiring a heritage statement to understand the significance of the buildings to inform any decisions. Additionally, and following subsequent discussions at the client’s request between OA North and Lancashire County Archaeology Service (LCAS), a heritage impact assessment for the whole of the iron works site was undertaken in order to understand the effect of the proposals on any potential below-ground remains and to inform any requirement for a planning application submission. The proposed development area extends to around 4.4ha, although the site for consideration in the assessment includes the surviving standing structures outwith the development area fronting Warton Road. These structures are within the Railway Character Area of the Carnforth Conservation Area.
