The road, connecting the city centre to the main campus of the University of Central Lancashire, is a popular thoroughfare for students.

Currently a former shop at 135 Friargate the application by Aise norvel Ndiele, a self-employed Preston businessman, aims to bring it back into use as a drinking establishment.

It is proposed the bar would open from 10am to 1am on Monday to Saturdays and from 11am to 11pm on Sundays. Bank Holidays it would open until 1am.

During the day the bar would provide tea, coffee and light snacks.

Two large student housing applications and plans to create retail units are currently lodged for Friargate – heralding a return to fortune for a street that has started to fade from its former bustling status.

The full plans can be viewed on the council website. Anyone wishing to comment on the application should do so by Thursday 8 August by emailing [email protected] quoting reference 06/2013/0474.
