Proposals for 47 houses to be built on green space in Blackpool have secured planning permission.

Blackpool Council's planning committee approved the application for homes on council-owned land between Ryscar Way and Faraday Way in Bispham.

The authority is now expected to sell the site to a developer.

A report to the committee by planning officers said the western part of the site was protected public open space with a right of way, meaning development should be restricted to other parts of the land.

Any trees and foliage which are removed will be replaced through re-planting, documents showed.

Last year the council received a government grant of £3.1m to unlock three parcels of land including Ryscar Way for potential future housing developments.
