Fulwood Library has been sold – but the new owner remains a mystery.Advertisement
Lancashire County Council has formally agreed terms of sale for the former library in Garstang Road.
Despite a campaign to save it the library shut at the end of September and went on the market just before Christmas.
Commercial property consultants HDAK were instructed to list the building for sale, inviting offers in excess of £475,000.
The whispers in Fulwood have the building becoming anything from a wine bar to a Subway.

Martin Ainsworth, in charge of sales and lettings for HDAK, told Blog Preston in December a bar and restaurant use was most likely.
Deputy leader of the county council David Borrow has approved the transfer of the building so detailed terms of sale can be confirmed – although who the transfer is to is restricted due to commercial sensitivities.
However, the sale of the building has now been ‘called-in’ to be reviewed by the Conservative group on Lancashire County Council.
What do you think about the sale? What would you like to see the building become?
