Ben Wallace, who represents Wyre and Preston North, tweeted to say a decision was due on Monday or Tuesday (September 9 or 10).

 

This is the third attempt from campaigners to have the building, which is threatened with demolition, listed.

English Heritage are among the groups to submit evidence saying the Bus Station is a “fine example of Brutalist architecture”.

Culture minister Ed Vaizey has recently listed buildings of a similar style and era.
