Each week, Lancashire’s councils deal with a wide range of planning application ranging from small household extensions to major developments and changes to buildings of historical importance.
This week is no different, with developers hoping to open new stores and bars as well as create more housing through the loss of pubs, restaurants and guest houses. As always, the plans are open to public consultation so affected residents and business owners can have their say by contacting the relevant local authority’s planning department.
Here are some of the applications registered across Lancashire’s various councils this week – which include decisions regarding a new restaurant, a dog training center and an extension with outdoor pizza oven at a listed farmhouse.

Blackpool Property Ltd has submitted an application to use the ground floor of the former Yorkshire Bank and estate agents as a restaurant. The property at 110-112 in Central Drive will be converted into a restaurant although details of the theme have not been revealed in documents submitted to Blackpool Council. The upper floors of the property will be converted into self-contained flats.
Jameel Hussain Kareem has been refused permission to build two bungalows for family members at a property in Burnley Road, Hapton. The plans, which Burnley Council has rejected, included four sizeable bedrooms, a kitchen and dining room, living area, en-suite bathroom and two garages. The applicant can appeal the refusal.
Helen Khan has submitted an application to change the use of a field on land off Holker Lane in Walton from agricultural land to two secure dog walking and training fields. Documents submitted with the application to Chorley Council reveal the land will be used to exercise dogs off the lead away from the public and in a safe and secure space.
Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is set to convert an office block in Lancaster into 13 houses. Plans have been submitted to Lancaster City Council to amend part of the proposed development at the trust’s community health offices in Slyne Road which has already been granted approval. The new plans involve changing the bike store and amending the layout in two of the properties.
Hamish and Henrietta Wilkie have been granted permission by Pendle Borough Council to build an extension, veranda and outdoor pizza oven at the Grade II-listed Scholefield House in Nelson. The property dates back to 1617 when it was owned by a clothier and yeoman called Christopher Aspden. A report submitted to the council concluded the proposed alterations would not result in any unacceptable impacts and the nonmaterial amendment can be approved.
Plans have been submitted to convert a former public toilets block near Preston North End’s ground into a fast food takeaway. The plans reveal the takeaway, at the corner of Hollins Road and Sir Tom Finney Way, will open every day, as it is ‘not viable’ to only operate on matchdays, and it will have two serving hatches. A takeaway previously operated at the site but only on matchdays and closed around 10 years ago.
