An outline planning application for 49 new homes in Wrea Green has been resubmitted.
Story Homes made the move following talks with planners over their proposals for land off Willow Drive in the Fylde village.
The house builder originally submitted an application for 49 homes in October last year. But, despite being supported by council planning officers, it was refused and is currently the subject of an appeal.
David Hayward, Development Planner for Story Homes said: “We have been in talks with council officers and believe the time is right for us to revisit this scheme. That’s why we’ve decided to resubmit the application.
“We still firmly believe our proposal offers a well designed scheme, one that will complement the existing character of the village and help to address the housing needs of the Borough, including an element of affordable housing.”
The plans would help the local authority to address the under-delivery of housing in the Fylde by boosting the supply. It would also potentially offer up to 30% affordable housing to address the needs in the Borough. The plans also include open space which would be enjoyed by the whole community.
The original outline proposal for the site, submitted in spring 2014, was for 100 homes.
Any development in the area would provide opportunities for local contractors as well as benefits for local supply chains. Employment opportunities would be created both directly through Story Homes and indirectly through the knock on effect for local businesses.

Story Homes already has an ongoing development in the Fylde area, having recently launched the sale of homes on Brookwood Park, a development of 117 homes off Blackpool Road in Kirkham.
