The next step in multi-million pound proposals for the Preston Bus Station site have been lodged.Advertisement
Planning consultants acting on behalf of Lancashire County Council have tabled plans for the western apron of the grade-II listed building.
Under the proposals – which already have outline planning permission – the western side of the Bus Station is to be turned into an urban park.
The new public area will have trees, benches and lead into the Youth Zone at the northern end of it.
Buses will use only the eastern side of the Bus Station for arrive and depart under the new layout.

Cassidy + Ashton said the only amendment from the original plans was to remove two sections of dwarf wall from the former taxi rank at the southern end of the Bus Station.
They said it would help prevent anti-social behaviour and provide ‘a more balanced landscaping scheme’.
