Registered speakers: Councillor Adrian Lowe (Ward Councillor) and Fran Lennon (Agent).


After careful consideration, it was proposed by Councillor Gordon France that the decision be refused on the grounds that the proposed increase of 45 dwellings would result in a severe residual cumulative highways impact such that it would prejudice highway safety and the free flow of traffic contrary to Policy BNE1 of the Chorley Local Plan 2012 – 2026. The motion was seconded by Councillor Danny Gee. A vote was taken, and the motion was lost (5:8:0)


It was proposed by Councillor Alex Hilton, seconded by Councillor Martin Boardman, and a decision was subsequently taken (7:5:1) that the application be approved subject to conditions set out in the report and a Section 106 agreement requiring an education contribution of £846,480.60.
