Preston City Council are welcoming the decision that Preston Bus Station will not be listed.

Councillor Ken Hudson Leader of Preston City Council said “We are delighted that common sense has prevailed and Preston bus station has not been listed.  The building is an eyesore and is simply not worthy of being listed.  It is too big, expensive to maintain and does not meet the needs of modern day bus passengers.  At least now we can focus on securing planning permission for the Tithebarn development and proposals for a brand new bus station that is fitting for the city of Preston.”

This decision removes a potential obstacle to the proposed Tithebarn development of Preston City Centre which provides for a new bus station, revitalised Preston Markets, a new cinema, cafes, bars as well as new offices, improvements to the shopping district and homes.

What do you think? Do you think the bus station should have been listed?
