A decision on a huge housing development in Barrowford looks likely to be made in November.

The outline 500 home proposal put forward by Peel Investments (North) Ltd at Trough Laithe in July was expected to appear at the next meeting of Pendle Council’s Barrowford and Western Parishes Committee on October 8th.

However, that now looks set to slip into November with Committee Chairman Coun. Linda Crossley saying: “We had thought about October but preparing the report has been a lengthy process and it will probably be November.

“The Barrowford and Western Parishes Committee usually meets at Holmefield House in Barrowford and it isn’t a very large venue so we may have to find a larger room as we anticipate a lot of people will want to come along to it and speak.”
