Plans have once again been submitted for a First World War monument and peace garden between Leyland and Lostock Hall.

South Ribble Council officers initially put forward an application to the planning committee last year, but withdrew it before a decision was made after the public complained about its appearance.

Now, after carrying out a consultation roadshow around the borough, the council says it has had positive responses from the community, and has submitted new plans for the councillors on the committee to consider.

The proposal includes a ‘unique centenary garden and monument commemorating the effort and sacrifice of everyone across the borough during the First World War’.

If approved, the memorial will be located near the roundabout of Stanifield Lane, Farington Road, Watkin Lane and Lostock Lane.
