A new small-scale supermarket is planned in the St Matthews area.

Plans have gone in to change a former storage unit off Ribbleton Lane into a new store.

The unit sits behind the Sun Market supermarket and across from the Hughes electrical premises in Crook Street.

Proposals from A&T Architects state the current property is in a state of disrepair and currently being targeted by fly-tippers and a hot spot for anti-social behaviour. It has also been targeted by arsonists.

With 18 parking spaces the new supermarket would be open from 8am to 9pm Monday to Saturday and from 10am to 6pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Four full-time jobs would be created by the new store.

No details have been given on what the mini-supermarket would be called and if it has any speciality products stocked.

Full plans can be seen on the Preston City Council website.
