A planning application is seeking permission to partly demolish and redevelop Preston Bus depot to allow the construction of new buildings.

It is proposed that the bus maintenance depot will continue to use the existing access off Deepdale Road.

The site has recently seen the demolition of several large industrial buildings as a pre curser to the proposed redevelopment.

On behalf of the applicant, agents Paul Gaughan Building Consultants, said: “The site is already an established and very successful bus depot, which provides employment for local people and businesses.

“However, it is evident that the existing units have fallen into a poor state of repair, offer poor economic sustainability in terms of ongoing repairs and thermal efficiency.

“Therefore, the proposed development would provide the opportunity for the continued operation of the bus depot on the existing wider site, thus the businesses will continue to operate and expand.”

In terms of appearance, the building has been designed to be ‘both functional and fit for purpose for its proposed use’.

Planning documents say the design is useful and practical as would be expected for a depot building, but that care has been taken to ensure the building sits within its location and appears attractive.

The separate Victorian building at the front of the site, which is currently used for offices, will be kept and converted for a different use under a separate planning application.
