2016 has been quite a year for the centre of Preston. The biggest thing to be noticed is that Fishergate looks a lot more attractive. As a pedestrian it’s now a pleasing place to be.
Winckley Square has been re-modelled and has an attractive heritage feature in the middle highlighting points of interest.
The Victorian Market Canopies have been refurbished and look very smart.
The Guild Hall is having a makeover and at the front looks a lot more attractive.
The proposals for the Harris Building are being drafted and as a Grade 1 listed building this needs to be done very sympathetically.
The entrance to the Bus Station Car Park is being rebuilt at the Ringway end.
The Trampower light railway has built some test track and the council gave approval for trials.
Work continued at UCLan around the demolished Fylde Building and Adelphi roundabout.
Primark have submitted plans to extend their shop front.
A new traffic flow round St John’s and the Covered Market is proposed.
