Lancashire proposal could deliver 2,267 jobs and £122m in annual economic benefit
Plans for a scheme that could create almost 2,300 jobs have been submitted to South Ribble Council.
The development involves three strategic commercial sites in Samlesbury, near Preston, that could provide an economic boost of £122m per year, as well as 2,267 jobs.
The proposals have been submitted by Logik Strategic Land as part of the emerging Cuerdale Garden Village vision that will include additional residential and employment land being promoted through the new Central Lancashire Local Plan.
It is estimated that the development could create up to 170,000 sq m of industrial and distribution space, 7,500 sq m of office space, 5,000 sq m of retail space and 10,000 sq m of hotel space on land that totals nearly 28 hectares.
The sites are well located, off major local road networks including the A677, A59 and Turner Green.
Logik Strategic Land is part of Logik Developments, a Manchester-based property and development business which has extensive experience of working on complex sites.
The submission follows a consultation process undertaken by the developer that was launched in December last year.
Neil Spencer, from Logik Strategic Land, 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.”
The three sites total nearly 28 hectares in size and the application is being supported by Avison Young as planning consultant and DAY Architectural as the architect for the project.
