Pickering's Farm

Pickering's Farm - Penwortham - South Ribble - Lancashire - PR1 9TX

Share your thoughts for the development at Pickering's Farm, Penwortham
  • Overview


    Plans for Pickering’s Farm are being brought forward through a partnership between Taylor Wimpey and the Government’s housing delivery organisation, Homes England.

    The plans propose a new neighbourhood, capable of delivering some of the new homes that South Ribble needs. We want to work with local people and community stakeholders to create a masterplan that will act as a blueprint for Pickering’s Farm and which will guide all future development at the site.

    As part of this process, we are presenting you with a blank canvass and asking you to provide your thoughts on the vision for the site.

    We would therefore like to invite you to a consultation which will take place on Tuesday 10th July at Kingsfold Methodist Church between 2pm and 8pm.

    A further drop in session will take place at Leyland Market between 2pm and 5pm on Friday 13th July. We would love you to join either or both of the above events to provide feedback on the future vision of the site.

    There will be an opportunity to speak with members of the development and there will be a number of small talks on some of the main topics. For further information please visit our main website at http://visionforpickeringsfarm.co.uk/

  • About the site

    Why are we developing at Pickering’s Farm?

    Within the South Ribble Local Plan (adopted in 2015) the Council have identified a housing requirement for up to 7,000 new homes between now and 2026 across the Borough. Pickering’s Farm has been identified within this Plan as a Major Development Site which can deliver up to 1,350 new homes.

    Our Vision Pickering’s Farm will be a residential led new neighbourhood and will make provision for a range of land uses including employment, commercial, green infrastructure and community uses.

    An agreed Masterplan is required for the comprehensive development of the site which includes Pickering’s Farm, and land to the south which is continued to be safeguarded guarded to Coote Lane.

    The character of a neighbourhood is important and we want to deliver an exciting, desirable and safe place that new and existing residents are proud to be part of. There are opportunities to deliver homes to suit all needs, from first time buyers to those looking for independent senior living.

    Ensuring that Pickering’s Farm promotes sustainable travel, such as cycling and walking, and is strongly connected to the road and public transport network is key to turning our aspirations for a sustainable development into a reality. Our plans will complement the ongoing investment into local transport, currently being brought forward as part of the Preston, South Ribble and Lancashire City Deal. This includes the widening of the A582 and the new Penwortham Bypass which will improve travel times to the city centre and motorway, relieving congestion through Penwortham.

  • Community

    Community Benefits

    Pickering’s Farm will play a crucial role in delivering new homes and jobs and complementing the ambitions of the Preston,

    South Ribble and Lancashire City Deal. During the construction phase alone, new construction and supply chain jobs will be created across South Ribble and central Lancashire, bringing a wealth of employment opportunities, including for young people through apprenticeships and local graduates.

    In designing the masterplan we also have the opportunity to design and build other employment opportunities, including new live/work spaces for local startup companies and retail and service jobs.

    This includes the infrastructure and facilities needed to support future employment, for example a neighbourhood which facilitates those who choose to work from home. The knock on impact of spending from future resident’s at Pickering’s Farm will benefit existing local businesses, including at Kingsfold and Tardy Gate. Increased Council Tax and the New Homes Bonus will also provide extra money for South Ribble Borough Council, which can be invested into the wider Borough.

    As identified in the City Deal, Pickering’s Farm will help contribute to a growth programme which is set to transform Central Lancashire by approximately £1 billion.

    Where are we up to?

    We will be hosting a visioning event on the proposals where people can provide their feedback and meet members of the development team.

    There will be a variety of ways to do this, including via paper forms, interactive digital surveys and by filming a short video clip telling the project team about your vision. This event will take place on:

    Tuesday 10th July at Kingsfold Methodist Church between 2pm and 8pm.

    A further drop in session will take place at Leyland Market between 2pm and 5pm on Friday, 13th July.

    The consultation is an opportunity to allow people to provide feedback on the future vision for the site and your opportunity to provide feedback will run from Tuesday 26th June to Friday 20th July. Therefore please ensure that all feedback is provided by Friday 20th July to make sure that your comments can be taken into consideration ahead of the preparation of a masterplan.

    For those unable to attend the above events, we would also welcome feedback via the online form provided on the following page: visionforpickeringsfarm

    Alternatively, you can contact us via email at visionforpickeringsfarm@lexcomm.co.uk or by phone on 0844 556 3002 during office hours.

    You can also write to us at Vision for Pickering’s Farm, c/o Lexington Communications, Queens House, Queen Street, Manchester, M2 5HT.

    Later consultations and workshops will be undertaken as the plans develop over 2018, as the team work towards adoption of the Masterplan by South Ribble Borough Council and the submission of planning applications for the new development in early 2019.
