Preston Docks’ Baffito Development Delayed After Building Determined “Unsafe To Enter”

A Preston Docks development has been delayed after the building was determined “Unsafe to enter”.

The former Baffito’s restaurant at Preston Docks is now a planned residential development and will be delivered in two phases – with part one currently delayed.

It was first reported earlier this year that an application was approved for a 64-bed care home and a block of 16 supported living apartments to be built on the site.

The application for the development, on Navigation Way, was submitted by Glenholme Wrightcare who are now seeking approval to erect the care home first and temporarily to grass over the part of the plot where the flats will eventually be constructed.

Preston City Council’s planning committee will consider the request to vary the necessary conditions at a meeting next Thursday (June 10).
