Landscape Institute competition set to regenerate Preston’s Winckley Square

A major project to regenerate Preston’s Winckley Square is now underway.

Preston City Council has teamed up with Preston Vision Board, the Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA), and the Landscape Institute to launch a scheme that will see the re-design of Winckley Square to make it a more attractive and better used area and encourage more people to use it as a link between Avenham Park and the city centre.

The first stage of the project involves finding a suitable consultant to draw up proposals for the regeneration scheme and the council has commissioned the Landscape Institute to run a design competition to search for an outstanding landscape architect.

Five landscape design practices have been chosen to take part, with the winner being announced in March.
