The site of the Former Pollards Farm is situated in a semi-rural location on the periphery of Penwortham which is located approximately 2.5 miles south west of Preston city centre. It lies off Howick Cross Lane which is accessed from the main Preston to Liverpool Trunk Road (A59).
Brick built farm house and barn together with a range of other additional agricultural buildings and undeveloped land. The property was last utilised as a mixed use dairy farm and a processing, bottling and distribution depot for milk and fruit juices however it has been vacant since 2004. The property has potential for either re-use, open storage or residential STP.
The site currently has a relatively large area of hard standing and parking, together with agricultural land within the north eastern portion of the site.
Approximately 2.45 Hectares (6.0 Acres). The site is roughly split into two equally sized elements, the part previously developed comprising the hard-standing and buildings which the pre-application advice indicates is suitable for development and the remaining agricultural land.
The properties and land has in the past benefited from detailed planning consent for residential development to create 10 private dwellings (Application Number: 07/2006/0500/FUL).
