Property developer Langdale Capital, has submitted an application to turn the empty and unused Railway Hotel in Parbold into a Co-op convenience store, with a separate building comprising four apartments.
Sam Miller, managing director, Langdale Capital, said: “We have submitted a well thought through proposal that will make a positive contribution to the Conservation Area and the village as a whole.
"Co-op is a community-orientated retailer which gives money back to local charities and organisations through its Membership Scheme. We look forward to improving the appearance of a prominent vacant site and improving local shopping facilities for nearby residents.”
"The original pub building will undergo a sympathetic restoration, saving it from falling into an extended period of vacancy and deterioration.
"Later extensions to the rear of the original building will be demolished and replaced with a high-quality extension. Whilst the former pub building will house the Co-op, a detached building will be constructed at the rear of the site comprising four 2-bedroom apartments.”
