Plans have been submitted for 350 homes in rural Preston.
Developer Wainhomes has submitted plans to build the homes on land at Maxy House Farm off Sandy Lane in Woodplumpton.
It comes after plans were submitted for 330 new homes on land off Lightfoot Lane by developer Redrow, and planners gave the go-ahead or 450 properties at neighbouring Haydock Grange at Higher Bartle.
Coun Ken Hudson, who represents Preston Rural North, said: “I have been on the council for 34 years and during that time in the rural north they have built 100 houses. They are now looking to build around 8,000 houses.
“We can try and stem the tides but it’s looking like the tides are overwhelming us.
“Everyone seems to think the way to get the country moving is to build houses. It’s not just a quick fix.”
The outline application includes access off Sandy Lane and 30 per cent of the homes will be designated as ‘affordable housing’.
The plan is only outline, but aspirations from the housebuilder include a large informal games and play area, car parking, and public open space.
Campaigners say the applications are not supported by proper infrastructure.
Coun Hudson said: “Like any of the other developments in that part of the city we are very much against it until there is the correct infrastructure in place.
“The application is very premature.
“It ought not to be supported until we have done something about the road network.
“The whole thing about these developments is they are just taking every little bit of green field that there is in the north of Preston.
“People living in the real urban areas need to go to these places to look at a green field. They are not going to make any more of them.
“We have got to have bus services, sewers, all these things ought to be in place before anyone even thinks about granting planning permission.”
Coun Julie Buttle, clerk to Woodplumpton Parish Council, said: “The difficulty at the moment is that we haven’t got the infrastructure in place to support the amount of houses.
“We can’t stop the developers submitting applications. The parish council has opposed all the developments but we know they will come eventually.
“The nearest secondary school is Broughton or Ashton. Both of those are at capacity, and that’s what we mean about not having the supporting infrastructure.
“If we are going to put all those houses there we have to have the services to support it.”
In planning documents, developers said: “This site is in a sustainable local in close proximity to existing services and employment areas...As the council cannot demonstrate a five-year supply of deliverable sites, the need for this strategic location to be delivered in Preston now is even more pressing.”
