The 1960s building in East Cliff, which overlooks the railway line, will be replaced with a brand new structure providing conference and office facilities.

The work is part of plans to redevelop the former Park Hotel building and return it to its original Victorian use as a hotel. The multi-million pound refurbishment will include a spa and a banqueting pavilion overlooking Miller Park.

In 2016 the future of the building was secured when Lancashire County Council sold the Park Hotel to the Local Pensions Partnership, a collaboration between the county council and the London Pensions Fund Authority.




A spokesperson for the Lancashire County Pension Fund said: “We look forward to being able to announce more details in the future about the plans.”
