Public invited to share views on plans for new homes in Preston
Onward Homes has unveiled plans to deliver new homes within walking distance of Preston City Centre.
A consultation on the plans launched on 5th June and will run until Monday 26th June. During this time, residents can view the plans and share feedback by:
– Attending a public exhibition on Saturday 17th June between 10am and 3pm at Onward’s office on Arundel Place (PR1 3RN), where members of the team will be on hand to answer questions
– Emailing the team at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 0300 555 0600
– Visiting the consultation website at www.onwardpreston.co.uk and completing a feedback form
Those without internet access can call the team to provide feedback and request hard copies of materials.
Sandy Livingstone, Executive Director for Property at Onward, said:
“The redevelopment of the Horrocks Mill site is a clear opportunity to transform a key part of the centre of Preston, one of our great northern cities and support the ambitious plans of the City Council. It will ensure this disused brownfield site turns into a thriving community that provides quality affordable homes and new open spaces that will support our existing and future residents.
“Our plans for Horrocks Mill support our wider ambitions to deliver a transformative redevelopment of the area. Local feedback is important to us and we want to work with residents, community groups and elected representatives to make sure that we get these plans right. We would encourage residents to share their views with us before a planning application is submitted to the Council.”
Onward has a longstanding commitment to Preston having confirmed last year its decision to demolish the tower blocks at the nearby Queen Street and Avenham neighbourhood and replace these with modern homes that better reflect local housing needs. Onward’s teams are currently working to support residents living in the tower blocks through the rehousing process.
