A PUBLIC MEETING WAS HELD on
WEDNESDAY JANUARY 11th
at 7.00pm Wesham Community Centre
Church Road Wesham
To Discuss the New Wesham Housing Application
(Land East of Fleetwood Road: Fylde Borough Council Application 11/0763)
A new planning application for 100 homes at Wesham has been submitted.
The latest proposal for housing on the land to the east of Fleetwood Rd is on one of the fields previously rejected by the High Court. The field is of the same tenanted working arable farmland as the previous rejected application. Concern has been expressed that the new application is intended as a first phase which if successful would be followed by a further application to fully reinstate the previous scheme for 264 homes. The site layout shows the same spine road terminating at the field boundary.
Over a period of nearly 3 years the previous scheme was comprehensively rejected by the Council's planning committee, the government inspector, the Secretary of State, and finally on September 1st 2010 by the High Court.
