Following the rejection of the offer to purchase by Grindleton Community Pub Ltd, the current owner has submitted a new planning application.
The planning application is purely and simply to change the use from Pub to residential. No other changes either internally or externally are contained in this application. The change of use is the largest hurdle the developer faces and objection to this is the strongest defence we have. It is our firm opinion that if change of use succeeds subsequent applications, the extent of which is unknown, will be more likely to succeed.
Grindleton Community Pub Ltd will be making a robust objection.
The planning application can be found at https://www.ribblevalley.gov.uk/planningApplication/31692
