As revealed last week on Pendle Today, councillors were due to hear an application to redevelop the former Langroyd Hall in Colne.

Work proposed would include redeveloping the exisitng hall, including demolition of 40 cublic metres removal of the rear rooflink and replacement windows. There will also be interal alterations to remove and install internal walls. Two new apartments will be built as extensions.

Pendle Council's Colne and District Committee will hear the application met last week in an online meeting, live streamed on the council's Youtube channel.

The committee is set to meet again next month after members agreed to go on a site visit.

A report to the committee stated: "The creation of an open courtyard to the hall frontage, enclosed by new apartment blocks to each side, would still enable appreciation of the hall from the driveway approach whilst allowing it to retain its dominant position on the site.

Leader Times reported in December that plans had been drawn up to create four new units to house 33 "extra care" apartments with cafe, gymnasium, hairdressers, and associated car parking.

The council has received mixed views from members of the public on the plans, which have been recommended for approval.
