A STATEMENT FROM SIMON RIGBY

"We are very disappointed that Preston will lose a truly Iconic building. The Council claimed that they were voting with their heads and not their hearts due to budget constraints and appealed for people to come forward so the Bus Station did not need to be demolished.

We did!

We provided safeguards against us being in it for a quick “buck” have the skills, resources and asked for no assistance from any tax payer.

We are at a complete loss but will study the detail when we receive it. Our motivation was always to save the Bus Station and we will now be working to see the building listed and thereby saved.”

 We now encourage you to support the campaign to save Preston Bus Station, by signing the e-petition, click the link below and you will be directed to the e-petitions website

Professional Team

"Preston Bus Station and Car Park is an important component of the City centre. If it did not exist one would need to be built. It is an architectural masterpiece and is included on the list of endangered buildings by the World Monument Fund"

"As a design practice we have had our HQ in Preston for over 50 years. I suppose we have grown up with the City's famous Bus Station and I truly believe it is a wonder of 1960's ambition and optimism. I think to demolish it would rob Preston and the Country of one of the most distinctive and unique buildings in the UK"
