There are plans to transform the former pub The Lamb into affordable living spaces, an art gallery, a concert hall and a coworking space.
A planning application was registered on February 10 for the change of use of part of the ground floor and basement from residence to art gallery (class F1) and office (class E(g) )) including modifications to the existing 11-bedroom multi-occupancy house.
The proposed plan for 83 Church Street in Preston city center will focus on restoring the Grade II listed building using high quality materials and creating en suite bathrooms.
The general public will have access to the art gallery and co-working space.

The planning documents state: “The proposed layout is intended to adopt the current approved as-built HMO layout. Including the existing position of the stairs, the original walls and the column on the ground floor.
“The addition of a publicly accessible use of the Art Gallery/Concert Hall – enhances the experience of the building and its reference to when The Lamb was a thriving public house in the 80s music scene -90.”
