PLANS to turn a 100-year-old bungalow into a wine bar and three shops have been recommended for refusal when they go before South Ribble’s planning committee next week.

The vision for 42 Liverpool Road comes after hopes to turn the site into a dementia respite unit were scrapped over funding issues.

Previous plans to demolish the bungalow and replace it with a retail and apartment block were passed but are no longer favoured by the owner.

A report to committee members states the proposal to extend the building at two storey to the western elevation would have a detrimental impact on a neighbouring house.
