Preston City Council is gathering opinions on the Stoneygate Regeneration Framework draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).

The SPD sets out key design principles for a proposed “urban village” type development across four key regeneration character areas:

  • Stoneygate – the historic core (West area)
  • Percy Street / Church Street area (North area)
  • Horrocks Quarter / Grimshaw Street (East area)
  • The existing housing and Cardinal Newman College area south of Queen Street (South area).

It includes plans for up to 1,655 new homes, pedestrian and cycling route improvements and public realm improvements.

The SPD supplements the Preston City Centre Plan, which was adopted in June 2016, and the Preston Local Plan, which was adopted in July 2015.

A spokesperson for Preston City Council said: “It is the role of the SPD to ensure future developments are carried out in a joined up and responsible way that is in the best interests of Preston and Lancashire.

“Essentially it aims to create modern, sustainable communities with a mix of housing, commercial uses, good pedestrian and cycling links, public realm spaces and green infrastructure.

“All these are vital to sustainable and thriving communities that are fit for the future.

“The aim is to require developers to build to high design standards and to show what can be achieved, so that the area will become an attractive place where people want to live and work.”
