Seven new homes could be built on previously-developed land in Leyland.

South Ribble Council has received a planning application relating to land off Mill Street, in the Seven Stars area of Leyland, which is currently occupied by storage units.

It is not yet known what type of housing would be built there, but agents Lea Hough Chartered Surveyors argue that “when considered within the context of the current use, the type of development proposed will deliver an environmental improvement.”

The design and access statement reads: “This outline planning application only seeks approval of the principle of the proposed development and the access arrangement. The appearance, landscaping, layout and scale of the development would be the subject of a reserved matters application at a later date.”

It adds that a pre-application enquiry concluded that developing the land for housing would be “acceptable in principle”.

The development would be accessed off Mill Street, and financial contributions would be sought for off-site public open space.
