Planning permission was granted to The Heaton Group for the building in West Cliff off Fishergate Hill.

Private terraces, roof gardens and ‘luxury finishes’ are promised in the £5.9million redevelopment.

Pictures released show how the grade-II listed building, built in the 1820s, will look when finished.

31 apartments, varying from one, two and three bedrooms, are being made inside the currently abandoned building and a new extension added on the back.

A spokeswoman for the Heaton Group said they would be working closely with Preston City Council to ‘ensure the original building is sympathetically restored and converted’.
