OUTLINE plans for five new homes on land at Whittingham Lane, Grimsargh, following the demolition of the existing house, Silver Birches, have been given the go-ahead by city planning officers, as have plans for an amended scheme for Longridge Town Football Club on the outskirts of the town.

The amended scheme for the football club involves land at the side and rear of the Alston Arms on Inglewhite Road – where plans have already been passed – for the erection of a single storey building to provide a changing pavilion, car park and laying out of a junior pitch adjacent to Chipping Road.

Further planning applications dealt with by officers at Preston under delegated powers for this area include:

Retrospective plans for the erection of a steel framed domestic storage building at Blundell Brook Farm, Cumeragh Lane, Whittingham being withdrawn, but retrospective plans for the change of use of existing poultry cabins for the storage of tractors, parts and related equipment-plant to be used in conjunction with the existing agricultural engineering business at the farm being passed.

Plans passed for the construction of a menage, erection of a new building and conversion of an existing storage building to stables, tack room and store room for livery purposes, following demolition of an existing building and alteration to the existing access.

The Green Man at Inglewhite being given permission for a fascia sign, hanging sign and painted logo, amenity board, menu box to front and two surface-mounted signs and painted logos to gables, externally illuminated by trough light, floodlights and downlights.

Plans passed for a two-storey extension at the rear of 43 Whittingham Lane, Broughton.

Plans refused for alterations to the existing detached garage and workshop at Higher Trotter Hill, Button Street, Whitechapel, to form a private dwelling.
