Fulwood and Broughton Cricket Club tweaks plans so expansion can begin

Fulwood and Broughton Cricket Club have updated their application for expansion to enable work to begin.

The Preston cricket club previously submitted an application in 2016 to expand it’s ground to the east of its existing premises. More recently, they have updated plans which now include extending an existing clubhouse in Garstang Road and an additional car park and practice facilities.

PWA Planning are the team behind the proposal and say they sek to remove the “Pre-commencement elements” associated with the original application. Funding will be finalised and certain parts of the development will go-ahead.

In a letter to Preston City Council, PWA Planning say the changes to the conditions “will not lead to an intensification of the use at the site” prior to the completion of off-site highway works.

The club officially purchased the over six acres of land in June 2018. 

The application can be viewed on the Council’s website. Any comments should be submitted by Thursday 25 July.
