Retirement flats are to be created on the site of a former Preston factory.Advertisement
Mulbury Homes has applied for permission to create a three-storey block of 70 apartments on land off Geoffrey Street, St Matthews.
The development company wants to demolish any buildings remaining from the former Tetrad factory on the Geoffrey Street site and replace with the new block.
58 of the apartments would be one bedroomed and 12 would be two bedrooms classed as extra care apartments.
49 parking spaces are to be part of the Geoffrey Street development.
It follows approved plans to convert land where India Mill used to stand into affordable homes, which is next to the Geoffrey Street site.
The £5million development also from Mulbury Homes will see 51 new affordable homes built.
Both developments form part of a masterplan to bring the abandoned industrial land back into use and tackle Preston’s housing shortage.
The Geoffrey Street plans are now out for consultation and can be viewed on the Preston City Council website.
Anyone wishing to comment can do so via the council website or by emailing devcon@preston,gov,uk by Wednesday 3 December quoting reference 06/2014/0842.
