A number of convenience stores cater for your daily shopping needs, with Nisa, Premier Express, Tesco and The Co-op all just a short drive away. If you travel a few miles further into Preston city centre you've got two shopping centres to take advantage of, selling everything from clothing to jewellery, and technology to accessories.
Efficient, modern design
Cottam Meadow is Built for Life: this means that the homes and development have met 12 Government endorsed requirements and is the sign of a great place to live. You'll be near to local shops, schools, parks and health care services - and you won't have far to travel to get the bus or train into the city centre.
The homes are spacious and easily adaptable to cater for all stages of life. The streets are well-defined and designed to encourage low driving speeds, making it safe for children too.
Some of the requirements include:
- Being close to good facilities and services

All of the above are incorporated throughout Cottam Meadow, making it a truly sustainable and inspiring development.
