Potential premises for Ham and Jam

A new coffee shop planned for a listed building in Preston city centre has been granted permission.


Ham and Jam is the brainchild of Richard Lowthian and is to be a new independent cafe.

50-52 Lancaster Road, across the road from the Town Hall, is to be converted.

Mr Lothian, director of Ham and Jam, said: “‘We are thrilled that our planning application for 50-52 Lancaster Road (a grade II listed building) has now been finally approved by Preston City Council Planning Committee. We are now able to proceed with our plans for the refurbishment and changing the use for this Grade II listed building.”

Refurbishment is due to begin in mid-June and the team are hoping to have the coffee shop open in late July.

Ham and Jam is also one of the entries into the Guild Merchant competition where an independent business can win thousands of pounds of funding.
