Landscape Projects wins design competition

Landscape and urban design practice Landscape Projects has won a competition to re-design Preston's Flag Market.

Landscape Projects, of Manchester, was chosen following a national design competition run by the Landscape Institute.  
 
Six proposals were displayed for public and stakeholder consultation held during November and December 2008.
 
Preston City Council's City Centre Committee chose Landscape Projects' design for the Flag Market following the consultation.

Landscape Projects will develop the scheme to detailed design prior to a bid being submitted to the North West Development Agency for funding.
 
The scheme will be completed before Preston's Guild Year in 2012 and will become a high-profile legacy project.
 
Preston City Council cabinet member for environment and regeneration Councillor Anthony Gornall said: "The Flag Market is historic, iconic and the jewel in Preston's crown and so it is vital that any future redevelopment is done properly."
