Location Buckshaw Village is an award winning urban development which continues to expand. The local centre presently includes a 35,000 ft² Tesco superstore, an 18,500 ft² Aldi, as well as a varied range of other retail and service providers along the high street and within the Lancaster Way development.
The local centre sits at the heart of the wider Buckshaw Village development which may eventually encompass up to 4,000 homes offering facilities including a primary school, health centre and retirement village. In addition, the adjacent 80 acres of employment land accommodates a significant range of commercial occupiers.
The development is well located within the North West being situated 2 miles from Chorley and Leyland, approximately 10 miles from Preston City Centre and less than 30 miles from Manchester. Ready access to the wider motorway network is via J28 of the M6 and J8 of M61 both being located within 2 miles of Buckshaw. Buckshaw Parkway railway station is located only 0.2 miles from the site offering main line connections to Preston and Manchester.
Description The subject site is situated at the heart of the Buckshaw Village’s local centre, adjacent to earlier phases of the wider development, fronting the centre’s high street, Barnes Wallis Way. Directly opposite is the East Block development comprising a fully let parade of 9 retail units with residential apartments above. The land to the north and east of the subject site also now accommodates significant new residential development.
Site Area The site extends to an approximate gross area of 0.324 hectares (0.8 acres) and is relatively flat in nature.
Planning The site has previously benefitted from full planning permission under application 08/01100/REMMAJ, for a mixed use development comprising 8 retail units to the ground floor with 26 residential apartments on the two floors above, designed to complement the East Block development opposite. Subsequently, this was superseded by a Section 73 application which varied certain conditions, reference 10/00334/FULMAJ. It is believed that the site has potential for a range uses subject to securing planning permission. Interested parties should however, make their own planning related enquiries directly to the local planning authority, Chorley Borough Council on 01257 515282.
