The Homes and Communities Agency hopes to develop the D’Urton Manor site – off D’Urton Lane – bringing up to 250 homes to the agricultural site between the M55 and M6 motorways.

Why are they not made to fund the building of local services along with new houses? There’s a sign outside the new builds on Eastway that says “we’re building new communities” that’s a lie they are adding to communities at the limit! No school places, impossible to get on a dentists books and waiting a month for a doctor’s appointment

Unreal, what are you twits thinking we are full to bursting half that are built round cottam etc are not sold – the doctors, schools etc are bursting at the seams as are the country lanes which are getting busier and busier and more dangerous where I live there is no bus service, no room at small village school no places for kids to play as no park etc no shops.

Yet they continue to build these so- called affordable houses. It’s a joke, I want to sell my farm as it’s now slowly becoming surrounded by fast cars, modern unaffordable housing and then they decide to build a road right through the village with a speed of 70mph – so I may as well move onto the side of the M6.

I sat in on the Goosnargh planning for Goosnargh Lane. It was a joke, the council had made its mind up before the meeting . We have one bus an hour that takes one hour to get into town . Last bus at 6pm and no bus on Sunday. No doctors or dentist and Longridge doctors are so full. The road gets packed when the school is coming out and weddings and funerals cars are every where, our village will be spoilt but what did they do? They passed it !! A green field to be ruined.

Happening all over the place this.... Why do we need so many houses building when there are houses lying empty?

Richard Giddins

Lancashire will soon have no green fields left

Monica Reynolds

More temporary traffic lights, more traffic, less green space.. I mean come on guys, Preston is full alright?!

Hayley Ann Jonsson

And where exactly are the schools, shops, doctors, dentist the list goes on as well as traffic?

Lucy-Jayne Ashcroft

Green belt land for growing not building!!

Kath Walmsley

The new houses should be social! That would solve a lot of problems especially for working people who can’t afford to buy!

Angela Ayres

It can take me nearly an hour to get tay to school and back if I drive her and the school is less than 2 miles away.....traffic is getting unbearable!!

Lisa Thomas

Enough, blimey Preston is gridlocked especially around eastway who on earth can afford to move into these new houses and what school can take any children as they are full it’s ridiculous
