The College had wanted to pull down its current engineering and IT centre as part of the building of a new £13 million science, technology, engineering and mathematics centre.

Previous plans for demolition of the old buildings at the Fulwood campus had been deferred due to the need for a bat survey.

Surveys undertaken show the likelihood of bats roosting in the building is minimal.

The new STEM building is due to be completed by this summer and in use by September.

The full demolition plans can be found on the city council website.

Anyone wishing to make comments can do so via the council website or by emailing devcon@preston.gov.uk by Friday 8 May quoting reference 06/2015/0260
