Preston City Council has granted full planning permission for 113 homes and a 18,700 sq ft Aldi food store in Longridge.
HOW Planning originally secured outline permission for up to 220 homes including residential apartments with care access and an area of commercial office floorspace, at the site on Whittingham Road.
The Manchester-based consultancy has now secured detailed planning consent, on behalf of Prospect GB, for the first phase of 113 homes and the Aldi food store.
Alexandra Eatough, senior planner at HOW Planning, said: “Securing planning approval is a fantastic result, paving the way for a partially brownfield site to be redeveloped into a high quality retail scheme. The significant investment by Aldi will not only enhance the visual appearance of the area and support the new residential development, but it will also create local jobs and further enhance consumer choice within Longridge”.
Harris Partnership is the architect.
