The University of Central Lancashire has applied for planning permission to remodel the area between the St Peter’s Arts Centre and the university library.

This comes as the university prepares to demolish the terraced properties in St Peter’s Square and begin building its £60million student centre in the new Adelphi Square.

Plans from BDP Planning outline how part of a wall around the churchyard needs to be demolished as well as four head stones relocated.

A spokeswoman for the university said: “The planning applications have been submitted as part of the University’s £200 million Campus Masterplan project.

“Work will take place to facilitate level access between the rear entrance of the new £60 million Student Centre up to the St Peter’s Arts Centre and Library. It will be carried out by the main contractor for the Student Centre.”
