More than 100 new homes are to be built on the site of the former Nightingale Hall Farm site in Lancaster.
City councillors gave the thumbs up at Monday’s planning committee meeting to amendments to a previously approved scheme for the land, which has a controversial history having been home to an animal rendering plant for many years.
The site is currently being developed for housing by Barratt Homes following the granting of planning permission in September 2014 for the erection of 128 residential dwellings with associated access and landscaping following the demolition of existing buildings.
The site has been subject to various applications over the years when its previous use was in operation.
The animal rendering plant ceased operations after a widespread fire around 2005.
There was an unauthorised intervening use as a timber recycling centre in 2008/09.
The new housing on the site will comprise 18 two-bedroom properties; 34 three-bedroom properties and 76 four-bedroom properties.
Of the 128 units, 30 will be affordable homes.
