House rules. No swearing, keep on topic and we will do our best to answer as many as possible.

You’ll be asking the questions with us as we quiz Preston City Council’s leader Peter Rankin. The man in charge of the Town Hall is sitting down with us to talk about all things Preston and you’ve been busy asking your questions.

Hundreds of you sent in your questions in advance and you can watch the live stream above from 7.30pm on Monday 3 November. You can also chat live with us during the interview using the chat box above, or you can go on Twitter and use the #AskRankin hashtag.

We’ll be interviewing councillor Rankin on lots of things, but the main topic is to be Preston’s city centre redevelopment. The city council has recently published its final city centre plan, seen the Guild Hall sold off, the county council announcing £23 million investment for the Bus Station and more. It’s a perfect time to see how the city council sees everything coming together. This is set against a backdrop of sweeping financial cutbacks, the Town Hall must save £3.6 million over the next three years.
