Like me, Preston residents, businesses and leaders are rightly proud of their city and its community spirit.

It’s this community spirit that led to the creation of Preston Partnership. People from the private and public sector coming together to enable positive change for Preston and to make our economy work for all our communities.

From the £200m regeneration of our world-renowned university, UCLan, and transformation of the Georgian Winckley Square, to the restoration of the internationally acclaimed bus station and our city living strategy, Preston’s progress is happening and is only showing signs of accelerating.

The Partnership and its people are very much future focussed.

Our 15-year City Investment Plan sets out a bold ambition for the city. Preparing our investment plan has stimulated collaboration, generated new ideas and sparked fresh thinking about priorities for the city. Partnership work in action.

In March 2021, we heralded the government’s decision to award Preston a £20.9 million Town Deal.

This funding will help transform Preston’s Harris Quarter through a range of impressive projects and unleash the potential of this cultural and civic city district.  Another positive story for Preston.

The Preston community spirit is enabling tangible positive change within the city, helping improve its appeal as a place to live, visit, do business, work and invest. A city for everyone.

If you share our passion, we’d love you to become a Preston partner. Find out how to join here.

Thank you.
