Appeal: 150 homes approved for safeguarded land in Ormskirk


A full application for 50 homes and an outline application for 100 homes have been given the green light for safeguarded land removed from the green belt in Aughton, Ormskirk, despite the inspector finding that the proposal failed to meet the requirements of specific policy triggers in the recently adopted West Lancashire Local Plan (LP).

Inspector Clive Sproule noted that the appeal site was included in the council’s “Plan B” for housing delivery in the LP, with such sites only being considered for development if one of three triggers for release from the green belt is met. These triggers relate to housing delivered in the first five years of the plan and the increasing of housing supply as a result of new evidence.
