Emery Planning achieved 2 planning permissions at Preston City Council’s November planning committee for residential development totalling some 127 dwellings at Swainson Farm, Goosnargh. The 2 applications were recommended for approval despite opposition from local residents, the Parish Council and, Ben Wallace MP.
The first of the schemes is an outline application for 87 houses on a 4.4 hectare greenfield site to the north west of Swainson Farm. The second application on a further 1.8 hectare site at the farm will see erection of 40 homes following the demolition of 4,600sqm of buildings at the poultry farm.
These approvals follow the successful securing of a further 26 dwellings on land opposite the farm earlier in the week under delegated powers.
All 3 sites will provide 35% affordable housing as well as open space and, contribute towards local infrastructure, including an enhanced bus service.
