Plans have been submitted to Wyre Council to construct 130 properties on land off Kepple Lane.

Plans have been submitted to build more than 100 new homes on land in a market town.

Developers hope to construct 130 properties on land off 
Kepple Lane, Garstang, close to the A6 (pictured).

Around 39 of the homes, which will be located on land behind Garstang Medical Centre, will be affordable.

It is not yet known how much the development will cost.

But one resident living on Kepple Lane has so far written to the council opposing the plans because he feels there are not enough facilities for the people who would move into the homes.

The objection said: “I strongly object to these plans being passed as I think the town is overstretched on many facilities but, most of all, if applications like this keep being passed, it will no longer be the small ‘Historic Market Town’ we all know and love.

“The deciding panel should ask themselves why it is people want to live here and then decide whether they are 
destroying a beautiful place with over-population.”

A statement compiled by Sedgwick Associates Chartered Town Planners, in support of the plans, said: “The application site benefits from being adjacent to an 
established residential 
community as it is within easy walking and cycling distance of a wide range of local services and facilities.

“It is proposed that access to the site be achieved from the A6. A separate pedestrian access is also proposed along the A6 and a segregated cycle/pedestrian route into the site will be provided in the north eastern corner, from the Medical Centre access road.”

The proposals will be considered by Wyre Council’s planning committee later this year.
