WCN Editorial Team 16 Sep 2020 EUROPE BUILDINGS

UK-based Robertson Strategic Asset Management (RSAM) has submitted a hybrid planning application to the Preston City Council for the development of a new residential project in Bartle, Preston.

If approved, the proposal can help in improving infrastructure and outline planning for residential development with nearly 1,100 homes, on a 46-hectare site on the Preston Western Distributor Road, bound to the north by the M55.

For the project, RSAM is acting as the site promoter to secure planning and site disposal and is also working with Tom Barron Pension Fund, the landowner and their advisers Eckersley. DPP Planning was appointed as a planning consultant.

Named Bartle Village, the project is expected to offer a better quality environment for residents and visitors and includes areas of open space and natural habitats for local wildlife.

As connectivity to the place will be provided by the proposed new road layout, Bartle Village is expected to act as a catalyst to encourage further development and investment in the wider area of North West Preston.

RSAM planning and development director David Miller said: “The proposed development of the new Bartle Village will see the introduction of a new sustainable community on the outskirts of Preston.

“Our application supports the Preston and Lancashire City Deal which is delivering a once-in-a-lifetime transformation of the area.

“Central Lancashire has amongst the best rates of new job creation and will continue to attract investment and residents.

“The new proposed Bartle Village will deliver a much-needed boost to the availability of quality residential options whilst creating a new village which will create economic, social and environmental benefits.”

The proposal is also claimed to include significant environmental improvements being made to the landscape along with the introduction of biodiversity enhancements and improving the overall visual appearance of the site.
