The first step in building Preston North End’s new training ground is to take place.Advertisement
But it’s new homes which are first to be built on the former Ingol Golf and Squash Club.
LMP Architects have put forward detailed proposals for the first 45 dwellings of more than 400 homes planned for the site which spans Fulwood, Ingol and Cottam.
Land due to be built on is a parcel of land on the north of the golf club site, from Lightfoot Lane in the north down to Carnoustie Close in the south. It borders Wynchnor on the east and Walker Lane to the west.
The homes would be a mix of two, three and four bed detached, semi-detached and terraced homes.
Seven objections have been received from members of the public, saying the junction to the development would caue traffic issues.
Council officers have recommended the scheme for approval.
