MEMBERS of Fylde Council’s Development Management Committee have voted to refuse planning permission for the proposed Greenlands Farm ‘sports village’ in Wrea Green.

The controversial planning application, which included a proposed new stadium for AFC Fylde, was rejected as it was felt to be of an inappropriate scale for its location in the countryside.

Councillors felt it would detract from the intrinsic value of the countryside and represent “unconvincing urbanisation” of Wrea Green that was not outweighed by the sporting and economic benefits of the scheme.
