AN application to build 17 houses in Sabden is expected to be debated by Ribble Valley borough councillors at their next committee meeting on Thursday, April 10.

The application from P&D Developments Ltd, for the homes off Pendle Street East, has been opposed by the ‘Love Sabden’ campaign group which was established last year.

The application had been due to be heard by councillors in September but is now expected to be ready to be debated by committee members.

Borough councillors will vote on the application at the meeting from 6.30pm in the Ribble Valley Borough Council Chamber in Clitheroe.
