Five new flats could be created in two run down buildings in need of demolition.


A former chip shop and house in Avenham could be converted by property developers.

SD Consulting have applied to convert the buildings on James Street.

A statement says: “The existing buildings are traditional Victorian, two storey brick terrace houses.

“Both properties are currently derelict. No 60 was previously a Chip Shop on the ground floor, with a small flat above. The property is in need of repair and modernisation.

“No 62 was previously a residential property split into two flats, but has been empty for quite some time. It is in a very bad state of repair, and the end gable wall has bad signs of sinking probably due to the trees present on the adjoining vacant plot.

“Both properties have lean-to extensions which are not of good quality design or construction, and are in bad repair.

“The properties are in desperate need of renovation, and the Client wishes to bring the properties back into use, modernise and refurbish them.”

The full plans are available to view and comment on at the Preston City Council website.

Anyone wishing to comment must do so by Friday 24 October and can email quoting reference 06/2014/0727.
