Allocation of land and sites for MD1 Cottam and MD2 North West Preston can be found in the areas for development section.
This site is within the broad area defined as North West Preston Strategic Location. The site, fronting Garstang Road, is currently in use, and at 1.5 hectare (ha) in total, could contribute approximately 40 new homes.
Given the site is currently in use, and the subsequent redevelopment requirements if it was to come out of use, it is not anticipated to come forward until later in the plan period (up to 2021).
The site is owned, and currently occupied, by Preston City Council. Along with the adjacent Preston Bus site, fronting Deepdale Road, the site covers a total of 4.3ha. The Council has set aside funds to undertake a feasibility study for redevelopment of the site.
The site is previously developed and located within an established residential area.
It is envisaged that the site could accommodate up to 300 new homes, incorporating a significant contribution of affordable housing/starter homes.
The site is currently in use for light industrial uses and is located within an area of mixed employment/residential uses within the Ashton area. Given the site is currently in use, it is not envisaged to come forward for redevelopment in the short term, residential would however be a favourable re-use.
The site measures approximately 1.3ha and could accommodate up to 50 units as part of a higher density development.
This is a former nursery, now vacant, 1.45ha site situated immediately adjacent to Eastway and within a suburban residential area. The previously developed site is suitable for lower density housing, and as such, it is estimated that it could accommodate in the region of 24 new homes.

Planning permission was granted on part of the site for 51 dwellings in July 2014.
The site is an existing employment site within the Deepdale area of the City. Covering approximately 0.96ha, the site is currently in use, but could provide approximately 38 new homes as part of a higher density housing development.
Given the siting of the employment uses, and the surrounding residential uses, if the site did come out of employment use, residential would be a favourable re-use.

A former school site, currently vacant following relocation to a site in South Ribble. The site is under the ownership of Lancashire County Council, and covers just under 1ha of land.

It is estimated that, accounting for some re-use of existing buildings, the site could accommodate approximately 20 units.
