Plans for 51 new houses in Broughton are set to be refused

A planning application for 51 new homes in Broughton is set to be refused.


The development in Garstang Road will be discussed at Preston City Council‘s next Planning Committee.

A report from the Director of Development and Housing recommends that the application be refused due to its location in the open countryside.

The report states: “The proposed development would be contrary to the hierarchy of locations for focussing growth and investment at urban, brownfield, allocated sites, sites within key service centres and other defined places, contrary to Core Strategy Policy 1.

“The proposed development is not the type of development deemed permissible under Local Plan Policy EN1 and the loss of open countryside for the development proposed is therefore contrary to this policy.

“Furthermore, the proposal does not comply with Policy RES1 of the Broughton Neighbourhood Development Plan.

“The proposal is, therefore, not acceptable in principle and the conflict with the development plan is given significant weight in the planning balance.”

Objections have been received from County Education – which requested financial contributions for school places – plus Broughton Parish Council and Ben Wallace MP. Concerns about the development were also raised through ten letters of objection.

The application (06/2021/1104) will be discussed at Planning Committee on Thursday 6 January. The report recommending refusal can be viewed on the Preston City Council website.
