Euxton Parish Council has submitted its objection to this application which was previously rejected at a Planning Appeal in November 2017 by the Inspector. That application was for 165 homes, this new application is for 180 homes.

The Parish Council's objection is:

Planning Application 19/00654/OUTMAJ

Land between Pear Tree Lane and School Lane, Euxton

Outline planning application for the erection of up to 180 dwellings including 30% affordable housing, with public open space, structural planting and landscaping, surface water flood mitigation and attenuation and vehicular access points from School Lane. All matters reserved except for means of vehicular access.

The Parish Council was disappointed that the applicant, Gladman, has felt it necessary to submit a further application for this site following a public inquiry which led to the rejection of an earlier application in 2017. The Council is strongly opposed to this new application and is not aware of any significant changes that have occurred to make this new application acceptable. The increase in the number of houses proposed is certainly not such a change.

For this reason the Parish Council considers that the new application should be determined on the basis of the adopted Chorley Local Plan and should be rejected.

The Council regrets that this new application will inevitably incur still more concern for local residents and more unnecessary work and expenditure for Chorley Borough Council.
