Councillors approve the 15 acre plan for the Cottam Brickworks District Centre which is to include a major supermarket, food and drink outlets and petrol station.

The masterplan includes a health hub and joins existing plans for offices and up to 206 homes in Cottam.

Architects Cassidy and Ashton designed the plans which include a new access route from Tom Benson Way.

Off-site works are due to take place at Ingol recycling centre.

Alistair Baines, chairman at Cassidy and Ashton, said: “We’re delighted that these schemes can now move forward and are proud to be working with our clients and supply chain to make improvements in Preston so it is more appealing to students and visitors who may otherwise consider the likes of Manchester or Liverpool.”

Cottam Hall’s future had been under threat in November when plans for a new supermarket in Fulwood at the Eastway Hub were lodged.

Councillors on Preston City Council’s planning committee threw out these plans and a smaller supermarket has been re-lodged by the developers.
