Approval expected soon for Preston’s £700m retail scheme

18 Nov 10 Lend Lease’s £700m Tithebarn retail scheme in the centre of Preston looks set to be approved, according to local press reports.

The scheme was approved by the council last year but was called in by the government for a public inquiry after complaints from neighbouring towns which feared losing retail trade.

Plans include 100 new shops, including a John Lewis department store, as well as a new bus station and refurbishment for the Guild Hall.

Lend Lease is now developing the scheme on its own after its partner Grosvenor pulled out last year.
