Future Development Plans – Preston

Monday, 19th October 2020 1345hrs – 1530hrs

This webinar will focus on development and regeneration activity in Preston.

Preston is going places.

In July 2020 the council adopted the Stoneygate masterplan which will herald the beginning of a £300m transformation of the city centre lead by the council but also supplemented with additional investment and development from the private sector.

This webinar will be one of the first opportunities to engage with the masterminds behind the plans and hear from those who’re set to use the plans as a catalyst for further development and regeneration across the wider Preston region.

Speakers for this event include:
