Preston City Council’s planning committee approved both of the scehemes.

The Maxy House Farm development on land north of Sandy Lane will see Wainhomes build 213 new houses.

Woodplumpton Parish Council objected to the proposals saying the East-West Link Road has not yet received formal approval.


They also said a proposed apartment block in the south east corner of the website would ‘detrimentally alter the character of Sandy Lane’.

Council officers stated: “The design, layout, appearance, scale and landscaping details are considered to be acceptable and the proposed development would not give rise to any unacceptable adverse impacts on traffic and highway safety, amenity or waste management.”

As a reserved matters application it means the detailed plans can now be put into action for the Maxy House Farm site.

Also on the agenda for the meeting on Thursday 9 November were outline plans for 250 homes on a 12.6 hectare site off D’urton Lane.

The plans from the Homes and Communities Agency received a number of objections from nearby residents.

Council officers stated: “Whilst objections have been received relating to the proposed development, it is considered that the principle of residential development within an area allocated for housing development within the development plan is acceptable. The proposed development would contribute to the Council’s five year supply of deliverable housing land.”
