The once-in-a-lifetime funding programme will transform Central Lancashire, creating thousands of new jobs and homes, while increasing the size of the local economy by £1 billion.
The programme will create new communities and opportunities for local people, and help improve the quality of life for those living in or visiting the area. This is our chance to embrace the opportunity of a lifetime.
We have a big plan
There will be so much activity taking place over the next few years across the area and it will affect different communities in various ways. To make it easier we have split it down into zones so you can find out what is happening near you.

Work is underway to improve the tank roundabout on the A582 at the junction of Flensburg Way and Penwortham Way. Improvements will include increasing the capacity of the junction, the installation of traffic lights and the construction of a new Heatherleigh spine road that will provide access to a new housing development.

Redrow Homes and the Homes and Communities Agency have submitted a vision in the form of a masterplan for around 500 homes and public amenities for land which borders Worden Park, Altcar Lane and Leyland Lane. Aspirations for the site include a mix of quality homes and features, including green spaces and two ponds, as well as the extension to Worden Park.

Centre of Bamber Bridge
Plans are afoot to improve the centre of Bamber Bridge with new high quality pavements, landscaping and contemporary street furniture. The intention is to create more of an urban village feel to this busy local shopping centre with the help of around a £1m facelift.
Thanks for those who gave their views last year and we look forward to updating you on the plans and next steps.
New Hall Lane improvements
Major improvement work started on Monday 25 April, along New Hall Lane in Preston with changes to the road layout, parking and the local environment. The work is scheduled to be completed early 2017.
Pedestrian crossings will be improved, parking spaces will be doubled at the request of residents and businesses, and the amount of street clutter will be reduced. Improvements to cycle routes are also being introduced.
The improvements on New Hall Lane will run from the junction with Mosley Street and extend just beyond the junction with Acregate Lane.
|Preston city centre|
The county council was granted planning permission for a bypass extending around the east side of Broughton. The Broughton Bypass will greatly reduce traffic in the centre of Broughton and improve journey times for motorists by creating a new route from the Broughton roundabout at Junction 1 of the M55 to the A6 north of the village.

Work has started on the first houses on the old Whittingham Hospital site and land south of Whittingham Road.
