AFL Architects Submit New Plans for Penwortham Mills

← Back to news & insight

AFL, in conjunction with Savills and Trafford Housing Trust, have submitted detailed masterplan and phased delivery proposals for a 19.89Ha site in Penwortham, approximately 1.5km to the south of Preston City Centre.

A joint commission between the practice’s masterplanning and architectural teams, the project also includes the design of 17 house types and a new supermarket. The final development will provide up to 330 new, high-quality 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroomed, mixed-tenure homes, plus retail amenity, enhanced connections and significant public open space to benefit the local community.

"The plans include the delivery of new public open space and upgraded footpath links to the nearby reservoir, which through new trees, shrub planting and retention ponds will deliver an ecological enhancement and improvement in biodiversity far better than the existing use of the land. By submitting a planning application residents and local businesses can have their say on the development, which we are confident will be welcomed in and around Penwortham. If we get planning permission we intend to be on site in the summer."
Fred Crawshaw, Senior Commercial Manager, Trafford Housing Trust
"We’re extremely proud of our work on these proposals. There is an enormous opportunity to create a thriving community on this site, through attractive placemaking, ecological enhancements and accessibility, and real affordable housing. It has been a real pleasure to work with Trafford Housing Trust and fulfil their ambitions for Penwortham Mills."

"We have received an incredible amount of support from the local community. If granted this would mark a multi-million-pound investment in the area, and the creation of new jobs when the store opens."
