Brief

Eastway is a large residential development of 300 high quality family homes, employment land, mixed-use centre, open space and green infrastructure. It is one of 11 development sites owned by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) which are being developed as part of the Preston, South Ribble and Lancashire City Deal.

The City Deal is an agreement between Lancashire Enterprise Partnership, Preston City Council, South Ribble Borough Council and Lancashire County Council, along with central government and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) to deliver almost 17,000 homes in central Lancashire over the next 10 years.

Solution

All ecology site preparation works and surveys were completed by Urban Green. This included the trapping and relocation of over 300 common into designated off-site habitats (imposed by a planning condition) and completion of bat, breeding birds and invasive plants surveys.

A landscape masterplan and detailed design was also completed for the site.

 

Happy Client

“Eastway is Story Homes’ flagship site in the North West, which will provide 300 high quality family homes in a great location on the edge of Preston. We have worked closely with Urban Green to ensure the toad population was relocated to a specially prepared habitat, in order to allow the development of this important site.”

Martin Nugent, Planner Story Homes

Results

The development will bring high quality properties to the market to help achieve growing demand for housing in the town, with up to 15% affordable homes for local people, sold through the shared equity where a purchaser buys a percentage of the property and has the opportunity to buy more shares up to 100% ownership.
