Preston Station Quarter
Investment in the Preston city region is driven by the 15-year City Investment Plan, outlining a long-term vision to transform the city with close to £1bn already invested or committed over the next few years.
At the forefront of growth within the region, Preston is undergoing a dramatic transformation, capitalising on the National Cyber Force (NCF) HQ facility on Preston’s doorstep, to create huge opportunities for commercial development and city living.
