Major Preston resi site hits the market
Trustees of the Tom Barron Pension Scheme have appointed agents to sell a 111-acre plot in Lower Bartle with outline consent for 1,100 homes.
Cushman & Wakefield and Eckersely have been instructed to market the site, which would be accessed via the Western Distributor Road.
Located north-west of Preston city centre, the development could also feature a primary school and a local retail centre after plans lodged by land promoter Robertson Group were granted consent earlier this year.
A new roundabout on Preston’s £207m Western Distributor Road is also proposed, opening up access to the site.
The distributor road slices through the plot. Approved in November 2018, work on the road began a year later, and is expected to reach completion in 2023.
Robertson Group is to deliver the roundabout and other infrastructure improvements.
The site, situated close to the 17th century Bartle Hall country hotel, is to be divided into four plots.
- Zone A: east of the Preston Western Distributor Road, north of Bartle Lane. Up to 278 dwellings, made up of apartments and two-to-five bedroom houses.
- Zone B: west of the PWDR, north of Bartle Hall and east of Rosemary Lane. Up to 389 houses and apartments.
- Zone C: west of Lea Lane, north of Blackleach Lane, up to 178 dwellings.
- Zone D: south of Blackleach Lane, west of Lea Lane, abutting the Fylde Council boundary.
Cushman & Wakefield and Eckersley are seeking offers for the whole site and individual plots.
