New Preston City Centre Apartment Block Will Create 28 Homes

Further plans about the Stoneygate Development have been revealed. New apartment blocks located within the area have been tabled.

The new apartment block will be situated on Grimshaw Street and provide 28 new homes.

The four-storey apartment block will include one studio apartment, six one-bedroom apartments and 21 two-bedroom apartments.

The proposals have been designed to “complement the heritage buildings on the street” and blend into the area.

Land designated for the apartment block, near to Preston Seventh Day Adventist Church, is currently used as a car park.

The plans were approved at a meeting of Preston City Council’s planning committee on Thursday.

On Friday morning, the Stoneygate Masterplan was unveiled, which sets out a vision for the redevelopment of the area between the bus station, Cardinal Newman College, London Road and the Minster.
