A major new housing development as part of the next stage in the North West Preston Masterplan has been tabled.Advertisement
Maxy House Farm in Cottam has long had questions about its future.
The Sandy Lane site saw a previous plan in January 2014 propose 14 new homes would be built once the farmhouse, owned by Andrew Bradshaw, was demolished.
However the plans were rejected due to concerns about how any changes to the farmhouse and associated land would impact the masterplan for the area.
Now plans from the Emery Planning group explain how up to 230 homes would be built across the 10 hectares of land near the farmhouse.

A swathe of farmland close to the M55 would be used and site surrounded by other approved and proposed new housing developments.
More than 6,000 new homes are due to be built across the North West of the city in the next decade as part of the City Deal – with new roads and homes seeing Preston rapidly expand.
The full plans can be viewed on the Preston City Council website.
