Former Spar Distribution Centre, Preston

Retail & Town Centres

Regeneration led mixed-use proposals on the site of an out-of-centre former SPAR distribution facility, comprising a new foodstore, new homes, refurbished homes, new community facilities, land and a new car park for a leisure centre, playspace for local schools, allotments, new highway works, landscaping and a new cycle way.

In negotiating the planning permission, loss of employment land, retail capacity and the distribution of large foodstores within the urban area of Preston, and traffic and highway considerations were the key issues which were resolved.
