For some years now the saga of Queensway has been rumbling on.
Defend Lytham and Queensway Environmental Defenders tried to stop this oversized development from being allowed, and for a while it looked as though the powers of the new Localism legislation might save the area from Kensington’s plans to concrete over yet another large swathe of the Fylde.
Sadly, despite widespread public opposition, the Government has allowed the appeal by Kensington. This means that the 1,150 properties and the new moss road now have planning permission.
On May 1st Kensington applied for
APPLICATION TO DISCHARGE CONDITIONS 4, 7, 8, 9, & 16 OF OUTLINE PLANNING PERMISSION 08/0058 FOR ERECTION OF 1,150 DWELLINGS, PROVISION OF A SCHOOL SITE, AND PARKLAND
and on 22nd April
APPLICATION FOR APPROVAL OF RESERVED MATTERS FOR CONSTRUCTION OF 110 DWELLINGS AND ASSOCIATED WORKS FORMING PHASE 1 OF DEVELOPMENT APPROVED UNDER OUTLINE PLANNING PERMISSION 08/0058.
We will be looking in detail at these applications and will be suggesting appropriate action in due course.
