The former Withy Trees pub in Fulwood is set to become a Muslim place of worship and teaching centre.Advertisement
The change of use application from the new owners of the building, The Noorani Education Trust, was approved under delegated powers by Preston City Council’s planning department today (12 June).
The development will include the creation of a car park and outdoor amenity space, and the replacement of a section of first floor flat roof with a pitched roof.
The former pub at the corner of Lytham Road and Garstang Road was sold off by Greene King last year.
This followed the sale by Greene King of The Sumners near Fulwood Barracks. The site is set to become a housing development after approval was recently granted.
