Supporting the local community and ensuring that Leyland is fully equipped to manage this new development is an essential consideration of the development team. The scheme will deliver new jobs and homes, helping to realise the Preston, South Ribble and Lancashire City Deal, which aims to create over 20,000 jobs and 17,000 new homes.
Space for new businesses, totalling 6.08 hectares, which could include a mix of light industrial and distribution uses, with some offices, creating new job opportunities for local people.
A new local centre, including shops and community facilities, and dedicated space set aside for a new medical centre and primary school.
A long term economic boost by attracting new residents to Leyland which will increase footfall in the Town Centre, raising spending in local businesses and services.
Sourcing local suppliers as a priority when possible to help with the site’s construction
