The developers claim 86 per cent of feedback from the consultation has been supportive of the proposals.

Regional managing director of McCarthy and Stone (North West) said: “We are delighted with the loacal response to our plans for Cop Lane, Penwortham. To date, this has been one of the most well received proposals in the North West, which shows how great the need is for retirement living accommodation in South Ribble.

“We have, at all stages, included residents, the Town Council, local businesses, and community group in the consultation process and I think the final designs we have brought forward are a testament to this.”
