A proposal to build 81 new homes in Broughton has been denied.

It had been previously set to be refused for a number of reasons such as it went against the Preston Local Plan 2012-2026 that states growth must be focused in urban brownfield and allocated sites.

At a planning committee meeting on Thursday 30 September the Wainhomes proposal was officially refused.

Speaking to Blog Preston, Pat Hastings, the Chair of Broughton Parish Council, said: “The Parish Council objected to this proposal as it was accessed off the JTW roundabout adding 80-odd cars, less than 30 per cent was a designated site under the Broughton Neighbourhood Development Plan, and it was a greenfield site.

“The key issue was that it would link with the other Wainhomes development at Keyfold Farm on Garstang Road, which was the subject of a 2018 appeal in which Preston could not demonstrate a five year land supply.”

Pat added: “The fear by residents was that the bypass would become an infill area but as yet this has not happened.

“The other key concern with all these developments is the lack of infrastructure north of the motorway, with no additional school places, a poor bus services and the local roads unable to cope.”
