The Preston Co-operative Development Network – Preston City Council
Posted on 3rd April, 2018
The Preston Co-operative Development Network (PCDN) was registered on the 27th July 2017 as a Community Benefit Society governed by co-operative values and principles. The constitution of the PCDN is an integral part of the ‘Preston Model’, and follows the recommendations of a report by the University of Central Lancashire to Preston City Council on co-operative values in Preston (Manley & Froggett 2016, http://clok.uclan.ac.uk/14526/). The PCDN is conceived as the beginnings of a Mondragón style network organisation of co-operatives, and the Network maintains strong links with the Mondragón Co-operative group in the Basque Country.
