Part of the former Goss printing site is to become a new office block on the University of Central Lancashire campus.

The university has lodged plans to build The Foundry on part of the site which is predominantly a car park.

Space for 130 staff is being created in the single-storey office.

Clad in grey the building will have a large recycling centre to one side, The Sidings, and a number of dedicated parking spaces.
