Preston plan hit by pull out

Preston's Tithebarn development may be in doubt after Grosvenor pulled out of the project this week.

Grosvenor executive director John Irvine said the company is refocusing its investment away from large city centre developments.

Neighbouring Blackburn with Darwen Borough and Blackpool Councils have criticised the scheme, claiming that it would draw trade away from their town centres (Planning, 24 July, p4).

A Blackpool spokesman commented: "We hope that if another developer replaces Grosvenor it would provide an opportunity to have discussions about the scale of the retail element of the Tithebarn development."
