An application to build a housing estate on land between Grimsargh and Preston, already rejected by the council and the Planning Inspector, is subject to another appeal.
Plans were submitted earlier this year by Hallam Land Management Ltd to build up to 100 homes on land north of The Hills on Longridge Road, and were rejected by Preston Council.
The proposals followed an earlier application for 143 homes on the site, which was dismissed by the council last year, and then again on appeal by the Planning Inspector.
The appeal was then taken to a challenge at the High Court, but the judgement was in favour of the decision to reject the application.
Ward councillor Neil Cartwright spoke of his “frustration” that a further appeal had been lodged.
He said: “It’s frustration really. They’ve lost two planning committees, one planning appeal, and they’ve lost the High Court judgement to challenge the dismissal of the public inquiry.”
Referring to the proposals, he said: “Quite simply, it’s the wrong place.
“It’s an area of separation - we’ve quite clearly said we must keep the gap between Grimsargh village and Preston.
“Secondly, we decided as a council where developments should go in Preston, and this area is not identified for development.
“We’ve also established that the small villages around Preston - because they don’t have enough facilities like doctors’ surgeries - we shouldn’t overload villages with extra large scale housing.”
A public inquiry is set for November 19.
