The long-awaited Cottam Brickworks site is due to see £80 million of housing, a new Tesco supermarket and other retail units created.

Planning permission is secured for the 28-acre site and developers can build 206 residential units on the site.

Ian Rankin, director of Cottam Hall Properties said: “We’ve already consulted with a wide range of stakeholders and they are very supportive of the scheme. Shops and amenities are sorely missing from this part of Preston and in addition to the canal side residential area, there will be footpaths and cycle ways to Cottam, the City centre, the UCLan Sports Arena and alongside the canal to open country.

“We have also created a nature reserve which will be a centre of interest for schools and the local community. It will be a very complete development, well served by public transport. Sustainability has been a key priority.”

The question of the Brickworks site future wobbled in November when a planning application for a new supermarket in Fulwood was up for approval.

Councillors voted to reject the Eastway Hub idea which Cottam Hall Properties said could have affected the viability of Tesco taking the supermarket at the heart of the Cottam scheme.

The plans for Cottam Brickworks go on display at St Margaret’s Church off Tag Lane, Ingol from 12noon to 8pm on Thursday 15 January
