Controversial plans to build new homes are set to be approved by planning chiefs.

Proposals to build on land at the Ashdell Nurseries site, off Victoria Road East, Thornton, will go in front of Wyre Council’s planning committee on Wednesday following weeks of opposition.

The authority has applied for outline planning permission on the site in the hope of increasing the value of the land and selling it to attract a housing company to potentially build 60 new homes – 18 of which would be affordable.

However, neighbours claim it would get rid of an area where children play.
