An application which could have seen 200 homes built in Nelson has been withdrawn.

Liberata’s outline application was seeking access only at this stage for homes at Further Clough Head off Bamford Street with the access off Marsden Hall Road South.

The application, which had expected to be heard at a meeting of Pendle Council's Nelson Committee in either December or January, had attracted a number of objections from nearby residents.

County. Coun. Azhar Ali, representing Marsden ward, also said he would object to it, saying there was a "major problem" with only one access on to Marsden Hall Road and urged the council to focus on brownfield sites rather than seeking planning development on green fields.
