Residential-led Mixed Use Development

Having secured outline planning approval for a new, predominantly residential scheme in Longridge, Preston, HOW Planning has secured a number of further planning permissions to bring the mixed-use development closer to fruition.

HOW originally secured outline permission for up to 220 dwellings, a number of residential apartments with care access and an area of commercial office floorspace, at the site on Whittingham Road, Longridge.

It has also been successful in securing detailed planning approval, on behalf of Prospect GB, for the first phase of residential development comprising 113 new homes and planning permission for a 1,739sqm Aldi foodstore. The new store will replace the permitted commercial element of the original, wider outline scheme.

The new Aldi scheme represents a multi-million pound investment that will create up to 50 new jobs.

Planning approval paves the way for what is a partially brownfield site to be redeveloped into a high quality mixed use scheme. The plans will not only enhance the visual appearance of the area and support the new residential development, but the new Aldi store will also create local jobs and further enhance consumer choice within Longridge.

The application proposes the erection of a high-quality and modern discount foodstore with associated vehicular access, car parking, servicing area, and hard and soft landscaping. Architects on the scheme are The Harris Partnership. Image courtesy of The Harris Partnership
