Consultation on a heritage plan for Winckley Square ahead of a £1 million lottery bid has begun.

The city council officially opened its consultation today on the Winckley Square conservation management plan, as featured on Blog Preston last week.

The proposals for the Georgian Square include bringing empty properties back into use, making more of the Sir Robert Peel statue and clamping down on rogue estate agent boards.

Deputy Leader, Councillor John Swindells, said: “Having a formal Conservation Management Plan in place for the city’s fantastic buildings, will ensure their heritage is preserved for future generations.

“Any restoration carried out would need to be in line with the building’s original design, ensuring the city’s history for years to come.”

The conservation management plan is needed to enable the city council to bid for money from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

You can view the full management plan on the council website.

The consultation runs from Wednesday 5 February to Friday 21 February.

You can submit your responses by emailing planningpolicy@preston.gov.uk or taking an online questionnaire.
