A spokesperson for Preston City Council said: “We want to maintain the momentum of change in our city to make sure the richness of life is within reach for the people of Preston.

“Our long-term strategy is centred on investment priorities to support our people and is focused on sustainable and shared prosperity for our communities.

“At a time when the Covid-19 crisis is deeply affecting our residents and businesses, our long-term strategy will make a significant contribution to our recovery.

“We’re always keen to hear feedback from people on how they think investment should be made in the city centre.”

The key themes within the plan are culture, health and wellbeing, city centre regeneration, skills and enterprise and connectivity.
