Developer submits fresh plans for Banks site at centre of housing appeal
by David Simister

NEW plans have been submitted to build more than a hundred new homes in Banks after the council failed to decide whether a previous proposal should go ahead.

Developers Redrow Homes this week submitted an application for outline permission to build 115 new homes on land near Greaves Hall Avenue and Guinea Hall Lane, which will now be considered by West Lancashire Borough Council's planning department. It follows a similar application launched by Redrow for the same site last year, which the local authority failed to make a decision on within its own eight week deadline.

As a result, Redrow launched an appeal against the local authority, which is ongoing. The borough council's planning committee, at a meeting earlier this month, said it had no objections in principle to the original development and did not intend to contest Redrow's appeal against the lack of a decision.

The new application is now due to be considered by the borough council's planning department.
