Brief

Part of a wider development, promoted by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), the 150 acre site is key to delivering Preston City Council’s housing targets and provides social, economic and environmental benefits to local and surrounding communities.

Solution

In collaboration with the HCA and Story Homes, Urban Green designed the landscape masterplan to enhance public amenities and maximising the environmental value of the site. This was supported by an arboriculture survey and in-depth ecology input. The scheme was carefully designed.

Planning consent was granted for the detailed design of 330 residential units along with neighbouring parks and canalside walkways.

Results

Urban Green is continuing to support Story Homes with the implementation of the development over the coming years.

Recently extensive newt and amphibian trapping and translocation was completed to Natural England licence requirements and vegetation clearance.
