Proposal for dwellings off Sandy Lane, Pic: PCC, Wainhomes

A planning application for 42 new houses in Cottam are due to be refused this week.

The application site benefits from planning permission as part of a wider site for up to 213 dwellings but the applicant has revised their proposals for the land and now proposes the land be developed in a different way.

However, it is recommended for refusal by planning officers on Preston City Council due to failing to comply with the Preston Local Plan, and would prejudice the delivery of strategic green infrastructure.

The original plans included 32 affordable houses and would be accessed through the wider outline site, which has an approved access point from the East-West Link Road.

There would be eight house types of two, three and four bedrooms and be a mixture of terraced, semi-detached and detached properties.

Dwellings would be constructed in red brick with tiled roofs and some would include a brick plinth.

All the proposed dwellings would include a 1.8m high boundary wall or fence to enclose their rear gardens.

The agent of the development is Maybern Planning and Development Ltd and it is due to be discussed by the planning committee on Thursday 1 April with councillors due to make a decision on the Sandy Lane proposals.
