MORE homes could be on their way to the Ribble Valley under new plans.

Applicant Mark Hurst has submitted an application seeking outline planning permission for housing to Ribble Valley Borough Council.

The proposals would see 21 homes built on land north of Higher College Farm off Blackburn Road, Longridge.

Also included in the plan is the formation of a new vehicular access off Blackburn Road.

The application comes as plans for commercial and office units were approved at a nearby site off Blackburn Road in December 2017.

The proposed site is also located adjacent from the Taylor Wimpey housing development which is currently under construction.

A design and access statement submitted as part of the application reads: "The proposal occupies a suitable and sustainable location on the approach to Longridge within close proximity to residential areas on the edge of the town, and is provided with good pedestrian, cycle and public transport connections."
