The 18 flats, which councillors demanded a site visit to consider the plans and the impact they would have on the grade II listed park, were deferred at the August planning meeting.

Preston Rural North councillor councillor Alexandra Thompson-Ortega said the plans did not appear in-keeping with the Moor Park conservation area.

The villas at 5 and 7 Moor Park Avenue are not listed buildings.

Council officers have recommended the scheme for approval, saying any conversion of the buildings was better than demolition.

You can view the plans on the council website.
