What is described as ‘piecemeal’ development has seen planning officers urge councillors to throw out the proposal for agricultural land off Tabley Lane in Woodplumpton.

Graham Anthony Associates had tabled the plans for the small housing development saying it fits the ‘garden city ethos’ contained within the North West Preston Masterplan.

But planning officers say the application is not needed and would cause issues with the planned East-West Link Road in the Cottam and Fulwood area and their plans to ‘downgrade’ traffic in the area.

Woodplumpton Parish Council objected to the application saying it was ‘premature’ and said it would ‘significantly increase traffic along Tabley Lane’.

Lancashire County Council’s highways department said the housing development did not sit well with it aspirations for the North West Preston Masterplan.

The Tabley Lane homes plan will be heard by councillors at planning committee on Thursday 12 January from 1.30pm at the Town Hall.
