Added Value Events

Stoneygate Masterplan Launch

Friday 12 July 2019 | 8am - 10am
Cotton Court, Preston PR1 3BY

Join us at this exciting event where the masterplan for the Stoneygate area of the city centre is launched.

Preston City Council with the support of Lancashire County Council and Homes England, appointed Nexus Planning with WSP, Buttress Architects, Colliers International, Eastham and Co and Gillespies, to prepare a regeneration framework masterplan for Stoneygate.

Covering around 25 hectares Stoneygate collectively represents perhaps one of the largest regeneration opportunities in Preston city centre. The framework masterplan and associated vision for the area will act to co-ordinate and encourage the actions of both public and private sector partners in the regeneration and development of Stoneygate as a mixed use ‘urban village’.

The strategy for Stoneygate builds on, and complements other initiatives in the city centre and Preston as a whole, and in particular contributes to meeting the objectives of the Preston City Centre Plan, the Preston Housing Zone and the associated City Living Strategy and Prospectus.

Refreshments are included
