In plans tabled with Preston City Council the connection with the area is explained: “The family partnership has worked hard to get to the business to the state it is in at the present day.
“They have a longstanding connection with the site and surrounding area, with four generation of the Fletcher family having famed at Harrison Farm, Goosnargh.
“However, due to the significant impact of foot and mouth in the early noughties, they had to diversify and took the opportunity to purchase The Horns Dam, which adjoined their grazing field, and took on the challenge of a completely new sector of leisure and tourism.
“As reflected in the planning history section, the business has gradually expanded. This has been undertaken in a sympathetic manner, introducing new landscaping and managing the land sensitively.
“The result is a high quality caravan and fishery, which is family run, well regarded and an asset to the local area.”

The proposed extension would accomodate static caravans and be to the south east of the main fishing lake.
