The scheme will be expected to deliver CIL payments to the city council to improve the neighbouring recycling centre as well as affordable housing, education, and management of on-site greenspace.

Gary Goodman, Director at BXB Cottam Properties Ltd said: “The new District Centre is a key component of the North Preston growth strategy and the facilities and services it will provide will benefit all the residents of north Preston.

“We are working constructively with the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership to pull together a funding package to assist in the delivery of the key infrastructure for the site.
