Plans have been submitted for the Deepdale Day Centre on the corner of Sir Tom Finney Way and Flintoff Way which has been sold by Lancashire County Council.

It was closed a number of years ago and now an Isle of Man firm, Ambara Limited, has bought the site.

Designs from Red Apple Design, based in Cheshire, show the buildings would be demolished and replaced by a 96-bed residential care home.

Up to 50 jobs are to be created by the care home, with 30 full-time staff employed alongside 20 part-time positions.

A 34 space car park is to be included on the site, next to Sainsbury’s, which will be surrounded by a perimeter fence.

A consultation period is now in place for anyone wishing to comment on the application.

The full plans are available to view on the city council website.

Comments can be made via the city council website or email devcon@preston.gov.uk quoting reference 06/2014/0673.

All comments must be made by Friday 3 October.
