Change of Use From a Public House to a Snooker Club - Accrington

Having the right entertainment and social facilities is central to promoting a lively community where residents can interact. Located in Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire, this vacant public house was once a focal point for the community but had sadly closed, following a demise similar to many other pubs.

Inspire Planning Solutions Ltd, were approached to secure planning permission for the change of use. With our knowledge of recent changes to the planning system, which allow for quicker changes between uses, we submitted a prior approval application.

We produced a Planning Statement covering the planning criteria relating to the streamlined changes and co-ordinated the production of other information to the Council. Consent was granted and the Snooker Club is now operational, brining life to a formerly empty building!
