New homes being potentially built just off the new Broughton Bypass look set to be blocked.


Gladman Homes had applied to build 95 properties on land between Pinewood Avenue on fields which line Garstang Road and James Towers Way.

Proposals for the homes faced objections from Wyre and Preston North MP Ben Wallace, Broughton Parish Council and Preston Rural North councillor Neil Cartwright.

Planning officers at Preston City Council have recommended the scheme be refused.

Council officers write: “The proposed development would result in the loss of an area of open countryside and would lead to an unplanned and inappropriate expansion of a rural village.”

Plans for the James Towers Way scheme will be debated at the next planning committee on Thursday 4 April.
