Appeal go-ahead on plans for 200 homes in Longridge

Preston and Leyland Citizen: Appeal go-ahead on plans for 200 homes in Longridge Appeal go-ahead on plans for 200 homes in Longridge

UP to 200 homes can be built in Longridge after an appeal was allowed by inspectors.

Cheshire-based Fox Strategic Land and Property Ltd were appealing against Preston Council’s failure to make a decision on an application for homes at Whittingham Road.

The Planning Inspectorate has granted outline permission for a mixed use development.

In a report outlining the decision, inspector John Chase said: “The proposal is not clearly contrary to any adopted development plan policy drawn to the attention of this appeal.

“However, even if this were not the case, the council acknowledge that they do not have a five-year supply of deliverable housing sites.

“Construction of new homes to help meet this shortfall of deliverable sites would be a clear benefit of the proposal.”

Preston Council did not offer any objections at the inquiry.

Why do the council not have a five-year supply of deliverable housing sites. If they got off their backsides and drove around the borough, looking for suitable locations, I'm sure the land owners would bite there hand off, if offered a chance of becoming a multimillionaire over night. They really couldn't run a 'you know what' in a brewery.
