Community Gateway Association and the landowner at the Bushells Farm site in Goosnargh have applied for permission to build 140 new homes.

The scheme would include 45 per cent of the homes on the 8.7 hectare site being classed as affordable.

PWA Planning, who have drawn up the proposals, said several open green spaces are included in their plans.

Director Paul Walton said: “This scheme would provide a high-quality residential development that would also make an important contribution to the council’s affordable housing provision over the coming years.

“It would also offer benefits to existing residents through improved pedestrian footpaths between the site and the village, enabling village residents to use the new green space and car park.”

A new community car park would also be included in the scheme, through a one-way access from Church Lane and the main access to the site will be from Mill Lane.

Executive director of customers and communities at Community Gateway Louise Mattinson said: “We are delighted to be involved in this development as it provides affordable housing in a popular location where there are few alternative affordable options.

“Being involved in the design and the application means we can provide more affordable housing and homes that are of a suitable size and quality to meet the needs of the local community.”

PWA say the site sits outside an ‘area of separation’ identified by Preston City Council for the west and south of the village.
