Up to 61 mainly family homes could be built on a former agricultural depot between Broughton and Whittingham.

A swathe of the site backs directly onto the motorway and has stood empty for more than years.

Hollinwood Homes say they would create a new access way off Whittingham Lane into the housing development.

Outline planning permission for site was secured under appeal to the planning inspector in 2004 after initial plans were lodged in 2002.

Plans from Hollinwood Homes say they want to create an “open landscape area, a great heart” in the centre of the development.

The full plans are available to view on the Preston City Council website.

Anyone wishing to comment can do so via the city council website or by emailing devcon@preston.gov.uk quoting 06/2015/0816 by Friday 30 October.
