Hulmes Mill Site - Leyland

There was an interesting article in today's 'Lancashire Evening Post'.

Apparently South Ribble Council is to allow shops to be built on derelict land near South View Terrace and Eden Street in Leyland.

What was really interesting is that the land is not to be used for housing as there is "an oversupply of housing in the South Ribble area".

If there is no need to build 40 houses on this brownfield site in Leyland, then there is certainly no need to build 4000 houses on a greenfield area next to the Ribble at Penwortham, as is suggested in the 'Riverworks' proposals...
