The University of Central Lancashire has been slowly buying up the houses near the Adelphi roundabout.

Now it has proposed demolition of 28 properties in Mill Hill, Fylde Road, St Peter’s Square, St Peter’s Street and Adelphi Street.

The properties are being knocked down to make way for a new large-scale student centre and the new Adelphi Square development – the last step in the university’s £200million masterplan.

The terraced houses, which have housed the university’s arts centre, radio station and multi-faith centre in the past, will soon be rubble.

A letter from contractors BDP to Preston City Council say they want to commence demolition in mid-August 2018 and it should take around two months to finish.

The properties due to demolition are 1 Mill Hill, 2,4,6 and 10 Fylde Road, 32 to 46 St Peter’s Square, 37 to 39 St Peter’s Street and 23,25,27,29 and 31 Adelphi Street.
