New jobs are set to be created as part of a multi-million pound canal development in part of Lancashire.
Garstang-based developers Graham Anthony Associates have applied to Lancaster Council for permission to build a 100-room hotel, a 50-berth marina and a 30m high wind turbine at Carnforth Brow.
The plans could create up to 75 jobs.
Residents’ views were split at an earlier meeting on the proposal, and Carnforth Town Council has called an extraordinary meeting to discuss the latest proposals, which would also create 20 part-time jobs.
The meeting will be held at Carnforth Civic Hall on Monday, April 16 at 6.30pm.
The hotel, intended primarily to serve tourists and business people using the motorway, would include car parking for around 100 vehicles at the rear of the building.
There would also be a small separate car park and facilities building at the new marina. The proposed erection of a wind turbine would contribute to the efficient running of the development, according to the plans.
The turbine is one of the new generation turbines, known as a Vertical Axis Wind Turbine, which collects wind from all directions without tracking, unlike the more traditional forms of turbines with blades.
The plans would also include a new roundabout and access off the A601.
Mr Salisbury said the original plans had been revised since the public meeting.
