A petition, signed by over 90% of the households approached in Wesham, objecting to the proposed housing development of 264 homes on countryside north of Mowbreck Lane in Wesham has been handed over to the Town Hall. Some of the members of Wesham Action Group (WAG) presented the petition to Andrew Stell, Fylde Borough Council’s Planning Officer who is in charge of the Application, at a meeting in St Annes Town Hall on Friday, May 8.
Wesham Action Group believe that this petition provides a clear and strong local rejection of the plan and should be given serious consideration when reviewing the application, particularly as this restates sentiments expressed during the question phase of compilation of Medlar-with-Wesham’s Parish Plan.
WAG have also sent Fylde planners a 57 page document (click here) objecting to the housing proposal and has set up a website to keep people informed of their activities. Visitors to www.weshamactiongroup.org.uk can read the full objection and get the latest information about the legally protected species of animal that live on the Wesham Marsh Biological Heritage Site (BHS) as well as other news on the campaign.
