Proposals have been unveiled to build up to 47 new homes on open space in Blackpool as part of a scheme to help more residents get on the housing ladder.
The council is applying for outline permission to develop a site off Ryscar Way in Bispham.
Last year it received a government grant of £3.1m to unlock three parcels of council-owned land for potential future housing development.
Of this, £400,000 has been allocated for infrastructure at the Ryscar Way site.
If planning permission is approved, the land will then be marketed and sold to a developer.

Any new schools, doctor’s and dentists to go with all these new builds?
It’s about time they built some council houses and more assisted living places.
Stop building on green land!!!
Yet again it’s saying housing for local people but selling land to companies so local people will get again be priced out. the local council needs to add to council stock then local people wont be at the mercy of private landlords and be able to rent with out worry of being evicted a few months down the line or the house/flat being sold under them.
Council properties are needed for people to rent, not property to buy, do not agree with anything being built on green spaces.
More green space lost.
Yes build here because there are lots of jobs in Blackpool. I don’t think so - stop building here.
I hope the land will all be brownfield land, like the Bispham School site. Our green spaces are precious.
Need council houses, schools, shops and doctors play areas, but for definite council houses not private.Rents too high.
Plant some trees there instead?
Where are all the jobs/businesses for the people who will move into all these homes ?
Any new roads to cope with the increased congestion as a result of these new houses? Thought not!
There will be no green space left!
What about the water table??Flooding abound!
I get that we need more homes - although we could always do something about this which are uninhabitable?
But please, let us choose the brownfield land and make sure we provide the infrastructure and resources needed to enable a sustainable community for years to come.
