Whittingham Hospital, Lancashire

Homes England

The team, headed by Campbell Reith as engineering consultants and including Barton Wilmore as planning consultants, are responsible for the development of proposals for circa 900 dwellings and a new primary school on the site of the old Whittingham Hospital to the north east of Preston city centre.

Prime are responsible for the design of the site access strategy and the assessment of the impact of the proposed development on the surrounding highway network. We have also been involved in detailed discussions with Stagecoach, the major bus operator in the area, with a view to amend their bus services to enable the site to be accessible by sustainable modes of transport.

A Transport Assessment and Travel Plan will be produced to support this scheme through the planning process.
