A third attempt to have Preston Bus Station protected as a listed building has been lodged.

The 20th Century Society, who wrote back in December about their admiration for the building, have written to English Heritage to apply for it to be listed.

The application will need to be approved by the architecture minister Ed Vaizey.

If it was approved it would halt the current Preston City Council plan to demolish the building.

Catherine Croft, from the society, said: “This new rigorously researched listing application is a fresh opportunity for the city council and other interested parties to re-assess the importance of this structure and to recognise its value as a legacy for the future of the city.”

“An imaginative refurbishment scheme could still secure the future of this architectural masterpiece.”

Two previous attempts to list the building failed.
