Future of Preston Youth Zone going to Cabinet

Thursday, August 02, 2018

The future of the proposed Preston Youth Zone project will be discussed at Lancashire County Council's Cabinet meeting next week.

The county council had been looking for an operator for the youth zone, which would be situated next to the bus station, but no bids have been received from possible operators.

The Cabinet meeting takes place next Thursday (9 August), where options will be considered for the future of the project.

County Councillor Geoff Driver CBE, leader of the county council said: "We're disappointed that no organisations or businesses applied to operate this youth zone, which aims to provide high-quality services for young people.

"We've looked carefully at our options for the project, in order to decide what happens next.

"The redevelopment of the bus station has already transformed this iconic building and the surrounding area, benefitting people who use it and increasing access.

"Any decisions that are made by the Cabinet will need to continue the improvements that have already taken place in this area of the city centre."
