Logik pushes ahead with 1.8m sq ft Lancashire industrial 

Three sites totalling 70 acres in Samlesbury near Preston could be redeveloped into an employment scheme capable of creating more than 2,000 jobs. 

Logik Strategic Land has submitted a planning application for 1.8m sq ft of industrial space to South Ribble Council following a consultation on the proposals last year. 

The three plots are located close to the site of the proposed National Cyber Force Campus and Samlesbury Enterprise Zone. Logik hopes its proposals can capitalise on the economic opportunities in the area. 

The scheme, designed by DAY Architectural, forms part of the 1,300-home Cuerdale Garden Village, being led by Story Homes. 

As well as industrial accommodation in a range of unit sizes, Logik’s is also proposing up to 80,000 sq ft of offices, 53,000 sq ft of retail space, and almost 100,000 sq ft of hotels.   

The developer estimates the development could provide an additional £122m to the local economy every year. 

Logik director Neil Spencer said: “It’s an exciting landmark to submit these plans, which we believe will provide a major economic boost for the area.  

“We feel there is strong demand for these commercial sites and they will assist with the wider aspirations for the area.” 

Avison Young is advising Logik on planning and Urban Green is the landscape architect and landscape planner.

South Ribble fast becoming the warehouse capital of the North West. Is there really a need for yet another logistics development? Shame it has to be built on Green belt.

Sounds like a pipe dream to me.
