Morris Homes will deliver 350 homes in Lea

Preston gives green light to 450 homes

Preston City Council has approved the development of more than 450 houses across two sites in Lea and Broughton.

In Lea, Morris Homes and CEG Land have been granted planning permission at Preston’s latest planning committee meeting for 350 homes off Hoyles Lane, with access, open space, landscaping and associated infrastructure.

The 48-acre site is agricultural land, and is part of the North West Preston housing allocation. The scheme will be made up of between two- and five-bedroom houses and apartments, including 105 affordable homes.

The plot benefits from outline planning permission from 2013.

In Broughton, plans by developer Charles Church on behalf of local resident Andrew Forrest to build 112 homes off D’Urton Lane were signed-off. The proposals were refused by the council in July, and received several objections including from Broughton Council which said that no new development should be permitted in the village until the Broughton Bypass is in place. The development has been reduced from 118 homes to 112.

The scheme will be made up of three- and four-bedroom mews, semi-detached and detached houses, on a 12-acre site currently used as a paddock.

PWA Planning advised Charles Church on the application.
