Protesters against a proposed 360 homes plan have demonstrated outside a meeting between councillors and developers.

As reported in yesterday’s Gazette, Hallam Land Management has submitted an application to Fylde Council to build on land at Blackfield End Farm, off Church Road, Warton.

Around a dozen members of Warton Residents Against Poor Planning (WRAPP) gathered outside St Annes United Reformed Church yesterday morning ahead of a stakeholders meeting between councillors and housing companies to discuss the general future of development in South Fylde.

Mike Wright, WRAPP spokesman, said: “It’s showing our opposition.

“Fylde Council says it’s holding this meeting to make developers aware of the opposition and we’ve had a lot of support from various councillors.”

Mr Wright now hopes the group will orchestrate a campaign against the planned development.

He added: “We’ve got to organise responses to this latest planning application.

“We’ll continue to lobby as many people as we can in the coming months.”

A spokesman for Fylde Council said: “The minutes of the meeting will be made publicly available on the council’s website for everyone to see.”
