Further details on a new Cottam Hall development are set to be approved by Preston City Council Planning Committee.Advertisement
The site to be developed covers around 10.5 hectares of land set between Hoyles Lane to the north and Cottam Way to the south.
The proposed Cottam scheme has been amended following discussions with local residents to reduce development to the northern section of the site, and increase it to the central and southern sections.
As a result the number of homes proposed has increased from 210 to 211.
The development would include a mix of one to four bed properties of two, two and a half, and three storeys. This also includes two three-storey apartment buildings.
A total of 63 affordable housing units would be provided within the central and southern sections of the site.

The development forms part of the Cottam Hall Strategic Site, which is a 53 hectare area of land with outline planning permission for a residential-led mixed use development for up to 1,100 dwellings.
There have been 12 responses to the consultation on this development, with concerns raised including that the development would adversely impact on wildlife and local amenities such as schools, doctors and hospitals.
The development is set to be approved at Planning Committee on Thursday 30 September.
