Updated plans have been submitted for six houses to replace derelict pub The Cricketers Arms in Broadgate.


Permission for the terraced development was originally granted by Preston City Council in February 2010.

A new application is seeking approval to update the design of the homes to modernise their appearance.

The previously approved front porches would be replaced with lean to ground floor extensions, creating an integral porch and improved living area space to the kitchen/diner area.

There would be no change to the size or location of the building, and the amount of off-road parking would remain the same.

The former Cricketers Arms in South Meadow Lane has been closed since a year or so before the original planning application was submitted.

The deteriorating condition of the building over the past decade has been the source of much local comment by nearby residents.

The application says the owners have been under ‘some pressure’ to act on the planning permission by demolishing the pub and building the terraced development.

It continues: “The owners are keen to oblige the local residents with the redevelopment but as stated are keen to optimise the quality of their development – which should also assist in enhancing adjacent property value anyway.”

To view the details of the application (06/2021/1697), visit the Preston City Council website.
