An Aldi for Fulwood has moved a step closer as part of a new mini retail park.


Land off Oliver’s Place, opposite the former Broughton Printers and Lancashire Evening Post site, has long been earmarked for development.

Cassidy + Ashton tabled a reserved matters planning application to Preston City Council giving details of the site.

A total of eight retail units would be created at the Eastway site, including the supermarket, a gym, and a number of drive-in food outlets.
