Plans to create a community hub in Broughton have the green light.
The empty Toll Bar Cottage in Garstang Road is now set for a new lease of life as the nod from Preston City Council means it will be transformed into a community cafe.
Pat Hastings, chairman of Broughton Parish Council, wants to set up cycle racks at the site so that people on the Guild Wheel will be able to enjoy a break at the cafe.
She said: “People can come in and have a brew and a chat.
“There will be police drop in surgeries, health promotion and decent Internet.
“It’s all about getting it going.”
