Hillside Kirkham Works Beginning; Area To Rear To Close

September 6, 2022

From the week beginning 22 August 2022, the area to the rear of the property known as Hillside, 48 Preston Street, Kirkham, outlined in red on the plan below, will cease to be available for the movement or parking of vehicles or access on foot, other than to the land owned by the adjacent Stables Bar.

The land shown outlined in blue on the plan below provides parking for patrons of the Stables bar only. This land is in private ownership and any agreements to park on this land must be sought separately with the owners of the Stables Bar. 

The closure of the area to the rear of the property (Hillside) shown outlined in red on the plan (excluding the area outlined in blue) is due to the commencement of major construction works at the site taking place as part of the Kirkham Futures Programme. The existing emergency fire exit route from the rear of the Stables Bar across a portion of the area, outlined in green, nearest to the building itself will remain available throughout the construction period and will be clearly signed.

The contractor for the works will require full use of the area outlined in red below as a site compound and this will be physically blocked off by the contractor until at least March 2024.

This work is related to the Heritage and Eco Skills Training Centre, which you can read about here.

Alternative parking is available at:

Mill Street Car Parks - Two tier car park to the east of Morrison's and adjacent to the Main Street providing 134 free parking spaces and 6 disabled parking spaces.

Orders Lane Car Park - Short stay car park near Town End providing 3 hours of free car parking

On street - parking where permitted. (please note that all on street parking is controlled by Lancashire County Council so all enquiries should be made directly to them at enquiries@lancashire.gov.uk or 0300 123 6701)

The works to be carried out to the property and the grounds to the rear are part of the Kirkham Futures Programme and further information can be found at www.kirkhamfutures.org.uk or by contacting the team on 01253 658658 or email kirkhamfutures@fylde.gov.uk
