Wyre Council has received plans from Emery Planning for 72 new houses in Barton.

The land, right on the border with Preston, is just off the A6.

A number of new shops would also be created with the development of the homes, as developers want to create a ‘local centre’.

Land around the site has been subject to a number of different planning applications in recent years.

Plans for 72 homes were submitted to Preston City Council just 200m away from the development site, which ended in a planning appeal which concluded in June 2016 with the city council conceding it could not demonstrate a five-year supply of housing.

Emery Planning claim the planning decisions in the nearby area ‘firmly establish that Barton is a locationally sustainable settlement for the provision of new residential development’.

Preston City Council have been asked by Wyre Council for their comments on the plans.
