Plans for a 360 home development in a village where residents are fighting plans to erect 1,200 houses have been met with outrage.
Warton residents group WRAPP has proposals to build the houses on farmland as “significant and depressing”.
Fylde Council have identified a borough-wide need for an additional 6,826 new homes up to 2030 with Warton earmarked for some of the homes and its emerging local plan allocates Blackfield End Farm as a “strategic location”.
The plans will be shown at The Lightning Club, Organza Suite, Mill Lane, Warton, on September 9 from 2pm to 7pm.
Around 800 residents signed a petition.
One, Mike Wright, has complained to Fylde Council claiming it has “failed to disclose important and relevant information to Warton ratepayers”
It is understood the new development was not mentioned despite two public consultation events with residents recently about housing plans.
Today he said: “There has been a complete lack of transparency and openness by FBC which has now finally destroyed any measure of trust that residents might have had. On one hand residents are being told the plan is not yet agreed and is open for consultation and yet developers are using the consultation document as justification for their firm proposals.”
A Fylde spokesman said: “Council planners hold preliminary discussions with potential developers on a regular basis as happens across the country. These discussions do not prejudice the eventual determination of an application.”
