The planning application to extend the former coffee shop house located between Manchester Road and Lydgate Lane has been withdrawn.
Previously a public toilet, the building closed as a coffee shop in January 2011 and is currently a two-bedroom residential house. In April, plans were submitted to extend the house but it appears that these have now been withdrawn.
Regarding the Moor View Farm planning application, Councillor Geoff Smith has raised some concerns with the planning department about the drives to the intended houses at the back, the underground springs and coal workings.
The owners of the Jet petrol station and Mace store are keen to sell and have had several enquiries about the site. We’re not expecting to get news on the convenience store planning application until September.
