PLANS to build a woodland school, eight new homes and allotments in Barnoldswick have been given the go-ahead.

The development, earmarked for land between Applegarth and Lockfield Drive, includes 12 car parking spaces and a children’s play area.The school would be used by Pendle Nursery, currently based in Fountain Street.

The plan had been recommended for refusal last month over concerns about access and noise from the nearby Rolls-Royce factory, but applicant Robin Southwell and his planning agent had worked with Pendle Council to address the issues.

Coun Jennifer Purcell said: “There is a problem with speeding on that road. We could ask Lancashire County Council to put some double yellow lines down to improve visibility.”
