Latest Fylde planning applications: Development at sports village and new swimming pools on table

These are just some of the applications submitted to Fylde Council in the last two weeks

Each week, Lancashire’s councils deal with a wide range of planning application ranging from small household extensions to major developments and changes to buildings of historical importance.

Council websites can reveal how developers hope to open new stores and businesses as well as create more housing through the loss of pubs, restaurants and guest houses. As always, the plans are open to public consultation so affected residents and business owners can have their say by contacting the relevant local authority’s planning department.

This week we take a look at some of the applications registered and determined by Fylde Council. They include plans to build a new home for a toy manufacturer at a sports village hosted by AFC Fylde, proposals to build swimming pools at private homes and a farm looking to diversify with the addition of camping pods.

Parish council objects to camping pods proposal

The owners of Stanley House Farm in Weeton have submitted plans to site six camping pods on land to the west of the existing buildings. David Kirkham, clerk to Weeton-with-Preese Parish Council, revealed in a report that councillors had voted to object to the plans. Councillors said in their report: “The highway, although a 40mph highway, is prone to potholes, speeding and there are concerns over the access and egress to the site, including visibility splay. The road surface is extremely uneven. The parish council has serious concerns regarding additional access from Weeton Road. In addition, there are several more parking spaces than pods – is there a reason for this? There are already numerous sites of this ilk within the immediate vicinity.”
