An officer’s report to the meeting said: “The applicants are elected Burnley borough councillors

“The property is a stone/blue slate building of traditional construction with two storeys to front elevation and three storeys to sides and rear due to falling land levels.

“It is presently a hairdresser’s salon at lower ground floor level, a café at ground floor level and vacant rooms a first-floor level.

“The proposal is: lower ground floor – maintain existing use as hairdressers; ground floor– use as office; and first floor – three flats.”
