Goosnargh Lane Housing Development

Preston City Council Planning Committee recommended the application for approval - subject to a Section 106 Agreement. As well as other financial matters, this Agreement confirms the tenures and tenancy arrangements for the affordable homes.

If the document is not signed, the Director of Development has delegated authority to refuse the application - so technically a decision is not formally made until the document is signed.

The Parish Council submitted a formal complaint to the City Council regarding the legality of the recommendation, the departure from policies in the Local Plan and the administration and procedures followed by the City Council and some Planning Committee Members before and during the meeting.

The Parish Council was not satisfied with the answers provided and engaged a Planning Solicitor to investigate the matter. Having reviewed all the documents, the Solicitor has stated that they will seek Counsels opinion on several points with a view to progressing a Judicial Review - but this can't occur until the S106 is signed.
