A FINAL decision on plans to build more than 100 homes on a disused Nelson sports field is expected to be made on Monday night.

Pendle Council’s Nelson Committee will decide whether or not to give the go-ahead to an application from Gleeson Homes to build 104 homes on the former James Nelson’s sports field off Priory Chase.

The latest application follows the refusal by the council of earlier plans to build 106 properties on the site on the grounds there was no open space in the development.

A report to Monday’s meeting says Gleeson has amended these to remove two properties and replace them with a play area with five pieces of equipment.

Members are recommended to approve the application.
