A new garden is being created within the campus of Preston’s university.

More trees are being planted on the city centre campus and the new green space is being created near the University of Central Lancashire’s Foster building.

New social spaces have been created, costing £8.15million, and now UCLan wants to add an outdoor element.

Chief operating officer Michael Ahern said: “Our Masterplan is based on the principle that spaces between the buildings are as important as the building themselves. We want to create biodiverse spaces that are green, accessible and there for the enjoyment of the students, staff and the public.

“The University has been highly ranked in the People and Planet Green League of Universities for a number of years because of our commitment to continually improving our environment. It’s critical we provide green space which is crucial for health and wellbeing.”

The university has also pledged to increase the number of trees from 450 to 700 across the university’s estate in the coming years.
