Fields to be lost in houses plan

Residents of Blackrod and Horwich need only look to Adlington to see what may happen soon.
The green fields adjacent to Blackrod have been allocated 179 houses in Chorley’s draft allocation plan. A developer is likely to put in an application for 300 houses on the site within the next two weeks.
Planning approval has already been given for c 70 houses at the foot of the site, alongside the railway.
ie 370 houses – more than twice what was expected and even before the allocation plan is approved.

In Blackrod, it has been noted that the boundary of the Blackrod Industrial Estate, for infilling, also contains a number of greenbelt fields.
