At the second time of asking the plans were heard at Preston City Council’s planning committee.

Councillors voted to accept the officers recommendation for approval of the plans by seven votes to four.

The amended plans included further open space being added on Ingol golf course where the homes and training ground would be built.

Councillors heard from a representative of Preston North End, from PWA Planning, who made it clear the training ground would not go ahead without the permission for the housing.

He said the funds from the housing were needed to pay for the site.

Passionate arguments from Bruce Ellison, chairman of the Ingol Residents Association, stated the councillors should defend the original Local Plan for the city.

The current Local Plan maintains the golf club as a green space with no homes.
