Emery Planning have applied to build the new properties off Whittingham Lane.

The scheme would involve the demolition of 126A Whittingahm Lane.

Objections to the plans have been lodged by Preston North and Wyre MP Ben Wallace, Broughton Parish Council, Goosnargh Parish Council and Whittingham and District Parish Council.

A total of 137 residents have objected to the plans.

A previous Preston City Council planning committee voted to defer the plans because a Section 106 agreement had not been reached with the developers.

Section 106 agreements see funding given to local authorities for school places, new roads and more when large-scale developments are built.

The amended scheme would see 35 per cent of the site being classed as affordable homes.

A report to councillors from planning officers outlines how because Preston cannot demonstrate a five-year housing supply the plans should be approved.

Councillors will meet on Thursday 10 January to consider the proposals.
