Plans for 14 new houses in Longton have been approved.
The Wainhomes development, which has attracted criticism from existing local residents, will be built on land at Chapel Park Road.
The two-storey, four-bedroom homes will have a new access road and associated landscaping to the rear of 1-6 Chapel Meadow and 134a-154 Chapel Lane.
Residents of Chapel Lane raised a series of concerns with South Ribble Council.
They included the prospect of extra traffic, fears the development would spoil the character of the village, and worries over drainage and “antiquated” electricity cabling.
One resident of Chapel Meadow said: “The formation of a new junction on Chapel Park Road is unacceptable.
“In a distance of less than 100 metres there would be four junctions; Chapel Lane, The Close off Chapel Park Road, Chapel Meadow and the proposed new access, all situated close to a blind bend.”
They added: “Many children walking home from schools in the area have to cross Chapel Park Road which is already so dangerous as to make crossing the road, even for adults, extremely hazardous.”
South Ribble Council’s planning committee dismissed the fears, but building cannot start until building material colours and texture have been agreed.
The development will provide parking spaces for 56 cars.
