A major new development for 64 homes in a village on the outskirts of Preston has seen detailed plans tabled.

Wainhomes won permission to build on land off Ribblesdale Drive in Grimsargh on appeal in June last year – and is now pressing ahead.

A total of 36 detached homes, 16 semi-detached and 12 apartments would be built along with new roads and a play area.

The building firm tabled the plans to Preston City Council’s planning committee who are set to approve the plans on Monday.

Grimsargh Parish Council had objected to original applications but has only said the new scheme is better in terms of its commitment to building affordable homes.

Four letters of objection from local residents have been received saying the affordable homes should be nearer to the new development’s entrances as well as the proposed garages being too small.

The city council’s affordable housing officer has supported the scheme, saying there is demand from the 45 plus age group for smaller properties in rural areas, particularly apartments.

Planning officers at the city council have given the reserved matters application the nod, saying it is “acceptable and satisfactorily integrate with the residential development into the existing village and its open countryside surroundings.”
