Goosnargh to see development of 140 new homes at Bushells Farm
Plans to bring another 140 homes to land in Goosnargh have been granted planning permission.
The proposals, from Community Gateway Association, will bring 63 affordable homes to Bushells Farm in Mill Lane - 45 per cent of the whole scheme.
However, arguing against over development in the area, Michelle Woodburn of Goosnargh and Whittingham Against Overdevelopment, parish council clerk Julie Buttle and city coun Lona Smith all appealed for members of the planning committee to vote against the development.
The build was passed on condition that developers provide on-site affordable housing, education provision, the future management of the public open space and provision for the improvement of bus services in the village.
Whittingham and Goosnargh Parish Councils, and Preston North MP Ben Wallace all wrote to PCC to voice their views against the scheme while 163 residents also voiced their disapproval.
