From Sunday, May 19th, the centre will not be open to the public as major construction and refurbishment works will be carried out to the multi-storey car park.

The multi-storey car park will close from 6pm on Saturday, May 18th.

The Nelson Leader reported last month that permission had been granted to bulldoze Nelson's eyesore multi-storey car park and former bus station to make way for a drive-thru McDonald's restaurant.

The Nelson Committee on Pendle Borough Council approved an application to build Nelson's first ever franchise of the famous fast food outlet.

Spearheaded by Reedley-based developer Mohammed Asjad's Future Properties (1st) Ltd, the development is expeced to create a mixture of up to 65 full and part-time jobs.

The development is expected to take nine months to complete.
