Preston Guild City

Horrocks Quarter

Cotton Court

Identified as a prime development site with opportunities to provide a range of modern affordable apartments and houses within walking distance of the heart of the city. 

Currently underutilised, the Horrocks Quarter sits on the eastern fringe of the city centre. Much of the current on site development consists of large format retail units with the vision for the area to include transformation to the frontage of the site, improve activity at ground floor level and significant improvement to the public realm enhancing accessibility to the area to and from the rest of the city centre.

In addition to recent investment in a food store an element of housing could integrate the area with the rest of the city centre and the inner east area offering the potential for affordable new houses and apartments to be set back from the road, at lower density to the core of Preston. It could also accommodate specialist housing for older people, given the accessibility of the area to local services.
