Preston North End Football Club is leading a visionary plan to create a ‘state of the art’ Premier League standard training complex at Ingol, Preston.
The plans will be officially unveiled to the public at a public consultation open day at the beginning of next month.
As part of the plans to be unveiled, in addition to the new training complex, there will be proposals to gift a piece of land currently in private ownership for use as public recreational landscaped parkland creating parkland twice the size of Avenham Park. If approved this will create the first new formal park in Preston for over 100 years.
The total scheme covering approximately 172 acres will consist of the training complex, the new parkland and a residential development scheme which will contribute to the City meeting its housing stock development needs for the next five years.
Detailed proposals will be unveiled at a public consultation meeting on Thursday 10th November 2016 to be held at Preston Grasshoppers, Lightfoot Green Lane, Preston PR4 0AP, between 5pm and 8pm.
Commenting on the proposals, John Kay, Chief Executive of Preston North End said: “We are very excited about the plans for our new training facility and the public benefit that will be derived from the overall scheme.
“It is important that as many members of the public as possible get the opportunity to see these plans. It is important that we take all views into account and these public events will allow as many people as possible to put forward their comments.”
