How part of a Preston housing development is laid out looks set to be changed.Advertisement
The controversial Connemara development off Lightfoot Green Lane in Fulwood faced years of being blocked.
Developers Charles Church Lancashire want to re-plan the northern section of the site relating to 53 of the 125 homes.
Proposals for the site date back to 2012 when it was originally refused by councillors.
But an appeal by the developers in August 2013 gained acceptance and work has commenced on the southern side of the development.
Plans outline how 31 of the properties would be detached, 12 semi-detached and 10 mews style homes which would be classed as affordable homes.

No objections were received to the re-drawn proposals.
Planning officers have recommended the scheme for approval as long as a contribution is made by the developers towards the East-West Link Road which is due to connect Fulwood to the new Preston Western Distributor road between the Docks and the M55.
