A former medical centre looks set to become a new pay and display car park.


Saul Street Clinic buildings which stand under the shadow of the city’s law courts is due for demolition.

Plans lodged to Preston City Council outline how it could become a new parking place.

PWA Planning have tabled the proposals for a 51-space car park once the former health clinic is knocked down.

It would have an entrance point to the north off Walker Street and an exit and entrance point to the south to Saul Street itself.

The clinic was built in the late 1950s and has been empty for around three years.

In documents to the city council PWA Planning’s Lydia Harper states: “The building on the site is considered to hold little value, having been vacant since the closure of the medical facility.

“The proposed carpark will provide valuable additional city centre car parking capacity and include appropriate safety measures, such as security cameras and lighting.”
