HOUSING could be built on the former Lucas Sports Ground in Reedley after plans for the work were submitted.

Developers Ribble Industrial Estates have submitted plans to build four two-bedroom semi-detached houses on the land.

A spokesman for the applicant said: “The site is currently an open space of overgrown sports ground and associated hardstandings.

"To the west and south are residential areas of quite large family housing and the east will ultimately form the edge of the new residential development being constructed.”
