The next step in a long-awaited new car park for Royal Preston Hospital looks set to happen.

Approved in 2014 the four-storey car park is yet to be built on the eastern side of the hospital site.

Lancashire Teaching Hospitals says it is in response to parking issues in surrounding roads and complaints from nearby residents, and staff, about the lack of parking.

The new car park would replace the current 210-space staff car park which is opposite the hospital entrance near St Claire’s Catholic Primary School.

Building the car park, which would have 680 parking spaces, would increase parking at the hospital by 470 spaces.

PWA Planning have lodged an update to the original planning application – which is nearing expiry for planning permission being granted – to vary certain conditions that were put on it.

They have asked for conditions to a travel plan, off-site works, taffic management, car parking, landscaping and trees to be varied.

The full planning application can be seen on the Preston City Council website.

No timescale has been given for when work will begin on the hospital site.
