Preston North End owner Trevor Hemmings is wanting to build 450 new homes in developments across the area previously used by the golf course.

The development also includes proposals for a new state-of-the-art training complex for Preston North End.

Land off Wynchnor has been identified as the first phase to see 45 new homes built and workmen have already moved in.

Seven objections were raised to the scheme by homeowners, as well as objections from the local flood authority.
