Detailed plans for hundreds of homes in North West Preston have been submitted.

Wainhomes had been given permission for up to 350 houses on a 11.30 hectare site at Maxy House Farm, off Sandy Lane.

Now plans have been lodged for the appearance, layout, scale and landscaping for 288 properties at the Cottam site.

An application has been submitted for the two-to-five-bedroomed homes on the land, which will be mostly two-storey.

A design statement, submitted my Wainhomes alongside the reserved matters plans, said the project had been designed as part of the wider masterplan for the area, and connections to roads, especially the East West Link Road, had to be considered.

It said the site was in a sustainable location near community facilities, close to schools, and incorporated a range of public transport choices.

It said: “The scheme will have a range of housing on the site ensuring that it meets the local housing needs.

“The site will provide 30 per cent affordable housing creating a diverse place to live.”

It added: “The scheme creates a distinctive entrance through the use of a landscaped public open space.”

Julie Buttle, clerk to Woodplumpton Parish Council, said: “The land is outlined for development so we knew the plans were going to come in.

“The parish council will now consider the layout of the homes, the road infrastructure, affordable housing provision, open spaces and play areas.

“Also, we would want to see how that application links to the rest of the development in North West Preston.”
