Local residents and businesses invited to give their views

The latest in a series of events being held by the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) will contribute to developing a more detailed highway and public pathway design for the University’s £200 million Masterplan.

Local residents and business owners are being invited to attend a public advisory workshop on the 8th September, where the proposals for the road network and pathways surrounding the Masterplan area will be discussed.

It will include a presentation which gives outline details of the plans put together by the University in partnership with Lancashire County Council.

The plans aim to create a more attractive and inviting environment for local residents, students and visitors, as well as improve connections with the city centre.

Michael Ahern, the University’s Chief Operating Officer said: “Working in partnership with Lancashire County Council, the highway and public pathway design proposals are being informed by the key principles and lessons learnt from the city centre Fishergate scheme.

“The views of local residents and businesses are vitally important to the University because we need to ensure our design proposals work for everyone whatever mode of transport they choose.

“Feedback we’ve received so far from community groups such cyclists and the visually impaired has been invaluable and is being used to help shape our plans during this early yet very important stage.”
