An abandoned pub on a busy Preston road is to be brought back into use.

What was The Belle Vue in New Hall Lane has seen plans lodged.

The former drinking hole is due to become a new shop and dental surgery.

A previous plan for the pub had seen a proposal to become four flats in March 2016, but these were withdrawn later this year.

PWA Planning has submitted proposals for the Belle Vue and acknowledges concerns about the building – as it is listed as a community asset.

A statement from the firm said: “It has been demonstrated that the proposed development of neighbourhood convenience store and dental surgery at The Belle Vue represents an entirely appropriate form of development within the periphery of the New Hall Lane local centre and should be welcomed and supported.

“The works would result in the re-use of a vacant site and secures long-term, active uses which will significantly contribute to the local economy whilst enhancing local health and wellbeing.”

The Belle Vue called time in the summer of 2014, after being reopened a number of times.

Full plans for the former pub can be found on the Preston City Council website and comments can also be left there.
