Residents in the area have been invited to view changes to the plans that could see Ikea come to Preston.


The Cuerden Strategic Development plans were submitted in January 2017 but have been met with a number of concerns across the community.

The bulk of those concerns were regarding the traffic impact in the area but others, such as the owners of St George’s Shopping Centre, have noted the potential impact on the city centre.

Resolve Public Affairs, representing those behind the proposals, have now emailed residents inviting them to view the amendments to the plans ‘as a result of feedback from the local community, ongoing discussions with South Ribble Borough Council officers and other stakeholders.’

Alongside Ikea there are plans for restaurants, offices, homes and other retailers which could see the creation of up to 4,500 jobs.

Cuerden strategic site at where the M65 begins has been earmarked for development for a number of years.
