Plans for a supermarket and small retail park in Fulwood have failed to be approved in a planning appeal.Advertisement
Eastway Hub in the Greyfriars area was twice rejected by Preston City Council’s planning committee.
They feared the development, which would be anchored by a supermarket surrounded by a restaurant and retail unit, would bring congestion to the area.
Cottam Brickworks’ development firm also objected to the scheme saying it threatened the viability of their multi-million pound project, which includes a Tesco on the Cottam Hall site, by diluting the demand from shoppers.
A planning inspector agreed with the council and rejected the appeal by Hollins Strategic Land Management.
The Inspector said it was not a suitable place for that size of development.
