A proposal to build 44 new homes in Broughton has been approved.

The application site comprises of one field to the south of Whittingham Lane and to the east of Broughton & District Club.

The site will contain a mixture of detached and semi-detached bungalows and two storey homes. There will be 12 two bedroom houses of two different house types, 15 three bedroom houses of four different house types and 17 four bedroom houses of five different house types.

As the site is not within the main urban area of Preston, on-site affordable housing provision is required. A total of 15 affordable homes is proposed, equating to an affordable housing provision of 35%.

A financial contribution towards 10 primary school places (£167,499.60) and four secondary school places (£92,247.00) is also required to comply with the Broughton Neighbourhood Development Plan and Preston Local Plan 2012-2026.

Vehicular access to the homes will be taken directly from Whittingham Lane via a new priority T-junction.

The scheme proposes the homes would be constructed from facing brick and tiled roofs to complement the existing properties within the surrounding area. Landscaping would be included across the site with tree planting along the roads as well as in front gardens.

The Design and Access Statement said: “The proposed development would relate well to the surrounding built form and due to the neighbourhood plan allocation the site has already been accepted as appropriate in landscape terms for this part of the site and that the site would be viewed as a “logical extension” to the urban form of Broughton.”

Seven letters of objections towards the proposal have been received, reasons of which can be summarised below:

  • There are already enough housing developments in Broughton;
  •  The land should be left free for a possible extension of recreation facilities at Broughton and District Club;
  •  The site is too close to the tennis courts and is not suitable for housing;
  • The proposed access is too close to the James Towers Way roundabout and is potentially dangerous;
  •  Inadequate drainage information has been submitted;
  •  Loss of green space and habitat for wildlife;
  • Inadequate car parking proposed
  • Increase in traffic and pollution.
