Preston Guild City

Courts, Preston

It’s an exciting time to do business in Preston.

The evidence of a city that is changing is everywhere, with cranes and new buildings dotted across the skyline and an ever-increasing range of both well-known and independent restaurants, bars and cafes opening.

Preston Partnership, established as a Community Interest Company in 2018, was created to harness some of that excitement, offer an opportunity for collaborative dialogue between the public, private and third sectors and actively engage in the development and future potential of Preston.

Offering members only quarterly meetings, added value events, newsletter and inclusion within the (currently-being-developed) online Members Directory, a small annual subscription fee enables the partnership to maintain its independence and self-sufficiency.

Director of Preston Partnership (CIC) and Director of Cassidy + Ashton, Alban Cassidy said,

“Preston has a lot to offer and is a great place to do business. I am glad to see that so many people are getting behind this positive initiative that is led by business and supported by the city council.

“There is a lot to be achieved by working together and promoting the success of the city.”

Founding Member, Interim Chief Executive of Preston City Council, Adrian Phillips said,

“We are proud to be playing an active role in supporting the development of Preston Partnership. It is a fantastic opportunity to better engage with Preston businesses for the benefit of the city and to support the local economy.”

Hosted by Preston City Council, the first Preston Partnership event, Preston, Where are we now? will take place in the iconic Harris on Thursday 14 March. There will be a number of speakers setting the scene and providing updates on key schemes happening in and around the city. Following the event there will be an opportunity for questions and networking.
