A planning application has been submitted for additional community space to be built in the Preston Minster churchyard.Advertisement
The application from Vicar of Preston, Sam Haigh, states the 82 sq m temporary, modular cabin would be constructed from steel panels, with uPVC door and window frames.
If agreed, the cabin would be in place for up to five years while an application for a permanent community building at the Grade II listed church is progressed.
The application says: “The need for a flexible community space is immediate, in particular for children’s work.
“However, fundraising is likely to take up to two years, so it may well be four to five years before a permanent solution is in place.
“To meet this critical immediate need, a temporary solution is required to ‘bridge the gap’.
“The cabin would be sited so it can remain in place for the duration of the construction work.”
