Vehicular access to the site will be taken from Riversway, to the south, as agreed in principle with Lancashire County Council Highways Department.
The site location plan shows a roundabout that will be built, joining Riversway, Blackpool Road and access to the new houses.
Pedestrian and cycle access will be taken via Blackpool Road, to the south-east, and the Preston Guild Wheel footpath/cycle path to the north-east.
Streets will be aligned to provide views away from the electricity pylons and towards the Savick Brook Corridor and beyond, to the golf course.
