"Central Lancashire New Town was essentially a regeneration and development programme for Preston, Leyland and Chorley. The scale of development proposed was considered to be too much for municipal delivery, so the Central Lancashire Development Corporation was designated to drive delivery – a bold move requiring tact, consultation and co-operation between seven local authorities. The Development Corporation had just a 15-year lifespan and is considered more akin to an Urban Development Corporation than a New Town Development Corporation. Central Lancashire was never intended to be recognised as a New Town in its own right. Today, Preston is a ‘Primary Urban Area’. Recognising opportunities and key links, since 2008 Preston, Leyland and Chorley Councils have been working together on a joint Local Plan."
